It's a new concept: Facts can be fun!
Take a moment, if you will, and think back to your medical training. Cramming page after page of medical minutiae into the cerebral sulci and trying to squeeze "Old Olympus' tufted top" in between the Krebs cycle and the mechanism of action of aminoglycosides are not most peoples' definition of fun. But what about "bullet item" listings of the latest information—"what's in" and "what's out"—on "hot topics" in infectious diseases? They, and much more, are included in Infection Highlights 1997, a neat little volume meant to be picked up and scanned.
