Reviews - What do customers think about Infectious Diseases, Second Edition (EXPERT GUIDE SERIES- AMERICAN COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS)?
Great book! Mar 1, 2008
As an infectious diseases books fan, this new product of the american college of physician has many positive points that make it one of the best infectious diseases books available: 1) This book is almost a summary of the IDSA guidlines. 2) Edited by Thomas file Who is one of the authers of the Community Acquired pneumonia guidlines by the IDSA. 3) Simple language, and greate balance between the basic knowledge, and the clinical informations. 4) The appendix contains tables covering the suggested etiology of the diseases, and the antibiotic used to treat with updated doses, which you can use as a quick reference.
This book as a mid-size text book that doesn't go too deep in the basics of the microbiology, and immunology but at the same time, it offers the enough informations that allow you to move to the clinical text very smoothly. As a 3rd year medicine resident who is going for infectious diseases fellowship, I recommend this book for Residents, fellows, internists and may be infectious diseases practitioners who want to review and update their knowledge without going to the long guidlines, or to the huge Mandell infectious diseases textbook.
