"The purpose is to help both clinicians and laboratory scientists better understand the pathogenesis of sepsis and its management. This is a worthy goal and this book meets its objective of clearly explaining this complex topic. ... This is a high-quality resource that does an excellent job of simplifying a complex topic. It is a valuable resource for professionals/practitioners and anyone who desires to study sepsis in depth." (John M Horne, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2019)

"This book provides the reader with the context on which sepsis care has been built, a review of current management, as well as a discussion of future trends. It would be a welcomed addition to a bookshelf of any trainee, health professional, or basic/clinical researcher who seek to immerse themselves into this complex and well-studied disease entity. It is concise and lends itself as an excellent, yet intimate, introduction into this vast topic area." (Vatsal Trivedi and Manoj M. Lalu, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 128 (2), February, 2019)

"Encompassing 16 chapters and 267 pages, the Handbook of Sepsis provides an up-to-date overview of the enigmatic clinical syndrome of sepsis. ... Asides from the text itself, clearly labelled colour diagrams and figures aid the process of learning, and well-defined tables are also interspersed throughout the book which can be referred to independently, without interrupting the flow of the main script." (Ned Gilbert-Kawai, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 79 (7), July, 2018)
