The latest edition of Mandell, Douglas, and Bennett's Principles and Practice of Infectious Diseases builds on 30 years of excellence, once again delivering the core content of infectious diseases in a comprehensive and easy-to-navigate manner. This encyclopedic, 2-volume text is a fitting tribute to what is perhaps the most dynamic field in medicine. Although emerging challenges such as H1N1 influenza, salmonella, and community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus capture attention and headlines, many aspects of infectious diseases are timeless, and microscopy, Gram stains, and penicillin remain essential aspects of the clinical armamentarium. In the seventh edition, the editors strike a careful balance that honors the old and features the new. The result is an indispensible resource for all infectious diseases specialists as well as others seeking improved understanding of microbes and the diseases they cause.
