It is a pleasure to review a book of such true excellence. Blair, Lennette, and Truant are to be congratulated for a superb job of assembling material covering the identification and isolation of bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses in a single volume. Usually manuals of this type are of interest only to the clinical laboratory worker. In this instance I feel this volume is a "must" for any internist whose subspecialty interest is infectious diseases. Large medical centers have microbiology laboratories staffed by well-trained individuals whose primary interest is clinical microbiology. But some hospital laboratories may not have kept abreast of the great progress that has occurred in the last decade. Improvements in transportation of specimens, isolation of Neisseria gonorrheae and N meningitidis, and identification of members of the family Enterobacteriaceae are examples. Consultation with this manual will allow the internist to review his hospital's microbiological methods with authority.
