Practitioners of professional reviewmanship, the art of honoring authors for their effort while pointing out their want of scholarship, had best avoid this book. It is a teaching opus of the first order; it will thwart those who hunt for even minor flaws.

The book focuses on the clinical aspects of the entire spectrum of human fungus diseases. The promise of the title is entirely fulfilled. With numerous sparkling pictures and clear, meaty language the student can have his fill of the latest, reliable information. The text is clean, trim, and lively while sacrificing no important detail. As if these advantages were insufficient, the book is written in literary English and not in the hideous vernacular of the ritual scientist. Each chapter is introduced by a crisp summation, a great retentive aid to students and a timesaver for the experienced. References are plentiful and well selected.
