More About the Author

Wallace Peters, a world-renowned physician and scientist, devoted his working life to research and academic teaching in the fields of tropical medicine and parasitology. For over 50 years his peripatetic life was shared by his wife Ruth, a linguist and art embroiderer. After her death from cancer, well into his eighties he continued to devote his time to writing, his primary objective being to stimulate people in retirement to regard their later years as a golden opportunity to enjoy the autumn of their lives. "Four passions: conversations with myself" was published in 2012.

Good book for a geek like me, wanting to become a specialist in infectious diseases.
You wont get a full description of the diseases but a good overview with lots of pics.

For the size of this book, the listed price is clearly on the high side. But if that wouldn't deter you, then, get ready to savour a delicious series of well-documented medical information.
This fully revised new edition of the "Tropical Medicine and Parasitology" maintained the tradition of providing succinct clinical information. Its principles, techniques and consistency makes it unique. The textbook is particularly useful for tracking down summarized topics.
However, it is very $$$ when compared to similar good texts.

So that's what a Bot fly looks like! 1 Nov 2005
By M. Campbell - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is my favorite book on tropical medicine. Half is well-written text and the other half is absorbing photos and informative illustrations. Each chapter gives a thorough description of the epidemiology and pathophysiology of a specific illness. The author also does an exceptional job describing important vectors and reservoirs. Contrary to previous posts, the price is extremely reasonable if you compare it to almost any other medical atlas.
