Toman’s Tuberculosis is an important
supplement to the library of anyone looking for practical information on tuberculosis
and its control. The second edition maintains the original format, presenting
evidence-based, clinically useful answers to a series of frequently asked
questions. Its valuable purpose remains to present material not readily available
in specialty books or chapters. It is ideal for a fast-moving world—its
size suits the traveler’s briefcase, its format permits rapid identification
of the subject, its economical prose serves up comprehensive information with
less than 5 minutes of reading.
