"A vibrant, digestible & fully comprehensive text! Medical Microbiology by Greenwood et al contains everything a medical student or microbiologist could desire; the chapters are arranged logically, the quantity of information is ample and is matched only by the quality.

Having searched for the perfect microbiology text for some time, I have finally succeeded."
