No other text clarifies the link between microbiology and human disease states like Sherris Medical Microbiology A Doody's Core Title for 2011! 4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW! "This will continue to be a popular textbook, primarily due to the well-designed figures and pictures in all chapters. It is one of the better textbooks I have seen for teaching the basics of medical microbiology."--Doody's Review Service For more than a quarter-of-a-century Sherris has been unmatched in its ability to help you understand the nature of microorganisms and their role in the maintenance of health or causation of disease.
