Product Description

A Case-History Approach

At the core of Microbiology: The Human Experience are case histories that put foundational concepts in a real-world context.

The bones are the consistent structure of learning objectives, summaries, and questions that support the clear, accurate, and organized presentation of the content.

The connective tissue is the art and highly readable text, by two masterful teachers and an experienced physician assistant, which puts infectious disease front and center and highlights contemporary topics such as the human microbiome.

Review

"I would definitely love to use this chapter to teach the diseases of the urinary system in that it is very well laid out and the material is presented how I like it to present it."
Charles Vo, University of Arkansas - Fort Smith

"Excellent, practical, stimulating, and definitively the book for allied health care students."
Lanh Bloodworth, Florida State College at Jacksonville

"Very readable, and excellent for allied health majors."
Meghan May, Towson University

"I think the level of discussion is spot-on for pre-health students, especially for a chapter that occurs early on in the text.... Easily read in narrative form."
Meghan May, Towson University

"The greatest strength of this text is that it is simply very well written. The information delivered is clear, detailed, and without excess verbiage."
Melissa Lail-Trecker, Western New England University

"I think this text speaks with the student as opposed to at the student.""
Michael E. Shea, Hudson Valley Community College

"The chapters provide a clear and simple introduction to the microbial world and contain a nice balance among examples, case studies, and the concepts discussed."
Sayna A. Jahangiri, Folsom Lake College

Used copy - no CD/disc included
Reviewed in the United States on January 12, 2021
I bought a used version, so it is quite old. Still, if has all the pages intact and I bought it for about $110, saving ~$30. However, I’m disappointed that the CD or disc that was in here was ripped out/not included. Would have appreciated if they let me know.

Everything is black-and-white
Reviewed in the United States on October 14, 2020
I had no idea that my book would come in black and white! I personally think I need color for the pictures. Also, it came in to different books and they are both huge and I wasn’t expecting that. Other than that it gets the job done.
