Book abstract: The 10th edition of the Manual of Clinical Microbiology continues to set the standard for state-of-the-science laboratory practice. It begins with a section dedicated to core diagnostic strategies and topics. Next, it helps readers understand the underlying mechanisms of both common and emerging infectious agents and diseases. With its careful step-by-step guidance, the Manual enables readers to correctly perform the appropriate diagnostic, therapeutic, and susceptibility tests and then interpret the results. Rounding out its coverage, the Manual addresses the taxonomy, biology, epidemiology, transmission, and clinical significance of almost all microorganisms that cause disease in humans.
