Reviews

"This is a useful reference...I recommend this volume for any academic college or university library."
- E-STREAMS, Paula J. Wolfe, University of Arizona Library, U.S. (October 2004)

"...no longer need we hear the refrain: if only there was an easy to understand, readily available, single source! Schaechter has provided it and deserves our sustained gratitude and applause...This encyclopedia is an indispensable tool that should be a constant companion on the desk of each and every microbiologist and all persons intrigued by the indivisible creatures that make life possible on this planet."
- Henry D. Isenberg, Long Island Jewish Medical Center, N.Y. (November 2004)

"...well written and authoritative."
-Microbiology Today (November 2004)

"This work provides a compact, affordable overview of microbiology topics that are of widest interest in the field."
-S.K. Oelker, Drew University, U.S., (November 2004)
