Clinical virology is exploding with information. What was once a quiet
backwater has become one of the fastest developing fields in modern biomedicine.
Into this setting comes the new edition of Clinical Virology.
It is hard to develop a virology text that does not become outdated
at a rapid rate. Nevertheless, the authors have done a superb job with the
second edition of this single-volume text on clinical aspects of human pathogenic
viruses. There are other books in the field but few that fit this niche so
nicely. Fields Virology, for instance, is more an
encyclopedia than a textbook for quickly gleaning relevant data.
