Handbook of Zoonoses: Identification and Prevention, 1e Reviews
Tons of information and it's easy to understand. Using it in a class right now and I think it is the best text book that I have ever had. Everything is broken down into paragraph long sections so it doesn't overwhelm you with tons of information. It is short and too the point.
The text is a small paperback but it is packed with concise, current information. Topics are very clearly highlighted in bold print.
It's an easy read and quick reference that is well organized. Written as a brief overview of each disease, it hits the high spots that you really need to be functional in veterinary preventive medicine.
Great book! And arrived on time.
A must have in the Epidemiologist's library!
Very helpful book for my Disease and Path. Class. Arrived quickly and was a good price. Will use this company again!
