"Otherwise, presentation is good, and the running heads that allow navigation within chapters are helpful." (Society for General Microbiology, 25 May 2011)

"Microbiologists, pathologists, and other biological researchers provide a reference on the pathogen and its disease that incorporates the new information and understandings provided by such innovations as gene sequencing, improved animal models, and efficient methods for genetic manipulation; all backed by the massive funding and accelerated research associated with The global war on terror after the still-unsolved anthrax attack on opposition politicians in 2001. Their topics include the outer structure of the Bacillus anthracis spore, the genome, iron acquisition by the bacteria, anthrax toxins, interactions with macrophages, dissemination through hosts, vaccines, and anthrax as a weapon of war and terrorism."
