    4-STAR REVIEW FROM DOODY'S REVIEW SERIVCE!
    "Wow -- now this is a really good book. There are so many admirable features! If you have any interest in antibiotics and laboratory medicine, you must have this book. It will answer any question you might ever have about how to test and interpret anything antibiotic-related in your clinical laboratory. This certainly would be of great interest to anyone... specifically laboratory medicine residents, fellows, or attendings (especially those overseeing clinical microbiology laboratories), infectious diseases fellows or attendings, clinical laboratory scientists in training or in practice, and clinical practitioners interested in how laboratories determine organism susceptibility to antimicrobials. Clinical pharmacists (especially those with an infectious diseases focus) or doctoral students or microbiology laboratory directors would find this book invaluable." - Valerie L. Ng, PhD MD, Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital, on behalf of Doody's Review Service
