"This is the second edition of the only book that currently approaches patients based on geography and type and duration of symptoms. It presents the information in an easy-to-read format and has many tables dividing the diseases into common, less common, and rare. This is a welcome update that covers several emerging diseases such as MERS and Zika viral infections and includes two new chapters describing infections acquired during sea and air travel" Winnie Ooi, MD, MPH, DMD, Harvard Medical School on belahlf of Doody's
