Description

This is a second edition of a very comprehensive book about the species in the bacterial family Enterobacteriaceae. The book is organized by the different genus within this bacterial family. It contains comprehensive and valuable information about this ubiquitous group of bacteria.

Purpose 

This is intended to be the primary reference source on the Enterobacteria. This family of bacteria is found in a number of host animals and insects as well as in the environment. The Enterobacteria have a long history of association with human disease and thus are commonly identified in a clinical laboratory. This reference is a reliable source for identifying clinical isolates in this family that are difficult to classify.

Audience

This book is a must have for all clinical microbiologists. It would also be useful for physicians, infectious disease specialists, pathologists, epidemiologists, infection control practitioners, and scientists. The authors bring a tremendous amount of expertise to this endeavor after many years of studying the Enterobacteria in the laboratory.

Features

This book covers each of the genera found in Enterobacteria family. Each chapter details the taxonomy and history of the genus followed by the epidemiology and clinical diseases associated with the species in the genus. An important component of each chapter is the great detail on laboratory identification and antimicrobial susceptibility. Especially useful are the differential biochemical tables found in the appendix. I have already found this information useful in the identification of bacteria that are unusual.

Assessment

I would highly recommend this book for all clinical microbiologists. With the rapid changes in technology, new bacteria in this family are being identified at an accelerated pace. This reference is up to date on the taxonomic groups, new names of the Enterobacteria and the reclassification of bacteria from other families into this group.
