"I enjoyed reading Chapters 9, 12, and 15 because these topics interested me. Other chapters can be recommended as sources of citations for specialists interested in those particular bacteria." (The Quarterly Review of Biology, 1 December 2011)

"On the whole, this book is of general interest for teachers of microbiology, who need to explain bacteriology in the genomic age, and it may also help clinical microbiologists choose tools for identifying circulating clones.  Finally, it can be useful to specialists in the field of emerging bacteria for whom the need to synthesize genomic data is part of their professional routine. I recommend this book most strongly for all of these bacteriology specialists." (Emerging Infectious Diseases Journal, 1 March 2011)
