Since its inaugural edition was published in 1970, the Manual of Clinical Microbiology has been hailed as the gold standard for excellence among clinical microbiology books. That tradition of quality continues with the publication of the new eighth edition. Greatly expanded and reorganized into two volumes, MCM is the definitive resource for the microbiology, epidemiology, and clinical significance of all clinically important bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. This invaluable text provides all microbiologists, laboratorians, and infectious disease professionals with the authoritative reference for running an effective, state-of-the-art diagnostic laboratory. No other single resource offers extensive, up-to-date information to address both the practical and esoteric questions. MCM sets the standard for reliability and day-to-day utility as a reference work for all busy professionals in the diagnostic laboratory and infectious disease communities. Guiding the clinical microbiologist in the selection, performance, and interpretation of laboratory procedures, MCM focuses on the when and why of diagnostic procedures, as well as the how. It presents a direct approach to organizing information with thorough but concise treatments of all the major areas of microbiology, including new microbial discoveries, changing diagnostic methods, and emerging therapeutic challenges facing clinicians.
