This is an exceptional text, epitomizing the ideal primer, and thus should prove of value to the student desiring an illuminating summary of travel medicine's first principles. The lively prose and lucid style combine to provide a unique snapshot of the core health and safety challenges facing international travelers and their advisors.

It certainly fulfills the objective, stated in the editor's preface, "to give concise, practical information for the general practitioner or health professional who advises or manages people who travel, particularly to more exotic destinations, as well as for those studying travel medicine."
