"After it's first publication in 1898, this is now the 23rd edition of Manson's Tropical Diseases, a very well written and edited book that provides excellent and profound knowledge on tropical diseases around the world! The outstanding information written by internationally recognized experts is provided in an excellent readable style, and as it is very clinically oriented it addresses practitioners as well as students working in this topic."
