From the reviews of the fourth edition:

"This book provides a focused appraisal of selected bacterial infections, detailing such timely subjects as healthcare-associated infections and organisms threatened in bioterrorism. … It is designed for physicians and scientists who encounter bacterial infections, including clinicians, microbiologists, immunologists, and researchers, as well as students training in the healthcare professions. … Each chapter is liberally appointed with up-to-date references and suggested readings. … This is an admirable update. It remains a succinct, useful, and practical reference for the bacterial pathogens delineated in the book." (John S. Czachor, Doody’s Review Service, September, 2009)

“Bacterial Infections of Humans: Epidemiology and Control … vividly illustrates recent advances in understanding the interface between bacterial pathogens and their hosts. … the importance of incorporating social and political efforts into global initiatives for tuberculosis control, emerge as additional thought-provoking ideas. … The book bridges biomedical and technological advances with clinical and public health applications and is a testimony to the increasing need to rely on a complex, multidisciplinary approach to understand the host-pathogen interface and to implement adequate prophylactic and therapeutic measures.” (Richard A. Stein, Journal of the American Medical Association, April, 2011)
