To quote Armstrong and Cohen, the editors of Infectious Diseases: "Several excellent text-reference books in Infectious Diseases already exist, but these are aimed largely at the specialist. Our goals in devising this all-new book were clear: . . . to create a book for both specialist and non-specialist practitioners that would give clear, practical advice . . . to be accessible and take advantage of the extraordinary developments in publishing [and] to make full use of high-quality image reproduction. . . . " To this end, they have tapped into the graphically "hip" style pioneered by the publisher, Mosby, and adopted a flashy, knock-your-eyes-out design that grabs readers and compels them to delve into this book with abandon.
