Influenza: Complete Spectrum–II is published in continuation with the Influenza: Complete Spectrum–I, and the second part converges on the clinical aspect of influenza. It also covers the various influenza immunization programs and policies being run in India to prevent and decrease the incidence of influenza and its complications among children and adults. The course of influenza is mild and self-limited. However, serious complications leading to morbidity and death occur, especially in those with underlying chronic illnesses. The book covers very well the complications and prognosis of influenza. The publication details out why, how, and when influenza vaccination should be exercised in children and adults especially keeping in mind the recent pandemic of H1N1. The book also has a chapter designated to the management of influenza which not only covers antivirals but also the other aspects of managing a patient of influenza and preventing its spread. The authors of the book have also elaborated on the present vis-à-vis future aspects related to influenza vaccine, an often ignored part of influenza management.
