Reviews

From the reviews of the seventh edition:

"The authors develop a comprehensive and easily read treatise on food microbiology. … As in earlier volumes, the 7th edition concentrates on the general biology of micro-organisms found in foods. The authors provide an excellent text suitable for a primary collegiate food microbiology course or as a desk reference for the working food professional." (Keith W. Gates, Journal of Aquatic Food Product Technology, Vol. 14 (4), 2005)

"The seventh edition of this highly acclaimed text explores the fundamental elements affecting the presence, activity and control of microorganisms in food ... . In-depth references, appendixes and illustrations make this an essential textbook for every food researcher and practitioner: a precious compass that cannot be missed on the microbiologist’s library!" (Roberto Foschino, Annals of Microbiology, Vol. 56 (1), 2006)
