By A Customer on July 8 2000
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most useful books I have seen. Each chapter of this book summarizes each infectious disease briefly, and comprehensively, including its ICD-9 and ICD-10 codes. The main focus is on public health response to the event of one case, for uncommon diseases, or the event of a cluster of cases for those more common infections. It is particularly useful for people working in the public health field such as health departments or researchers. However, it is also very handy for clinicians that want to know how to react in front of diseases that may not be common anymore. Specially useful is the chapter on surveillance and reporting. If you want to have one good and simple consulting book on infectious diseases, "Control of Communicable Diseases Manual" is the book you should own.

I bought this book to study for a sanitarian examination. This book was excellent. It covers mode of transmission, vectors, clinical symptoms and classification. I strongly suggest this book to individuals in the field of environmental and consumer safety.

This book is an absolute necessity for anyone involved in infection control or infectious diseases. It is perfect for
a quick reference - I keep nearby when I am working and refer to
it often.

A great resource to have in your deployment bag March 12 2006
By Fly Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you're in the military, work for an NGO, or are about to do a medical school rotation in a developing country, this is a great resource to throw into your bags. I bought this book without knowing there was a more recent edition (and paid a lot more than some of the current used prices). The newest edition has pictures and has some of the most up to date information on leishmaniasis and malaria, but for a few bucks you can get a used edition of this and still have more than 95% of the information remain relevant and useful.
