"This well written manual serves as an excellent reference for many of the day-to-day issues encountered in a travel medicine practice as well as for medical providers who encounter patients with a post-travel problem. Topics are covered in more detail than in MCQs in Travel and Tropical Medicine: A Primer Of Travel Medicine, Colbert (iUniverse, 2006). The fourth edition has updated many chapters with new information and evidence-based recommendations." - Doody’s - 4 Stars - ****
"An excellent, concise resource that provides practical information to travel and tropical medicine specialists, health care personnel who work with immigrant and refugee health, and primary care providers in internal medicine, family medicine, and pediatrics. The manual has relevant information for providers around the world, not just North America…The excellent, detailed sections on pretravel consultations and the evaluation of fever and skin lesions in returning travelers as well as parasitic infections make this book a miniature, highly concentrated opus on both travel and tropical medicine." - Clinical Infectious Diseases December 2009
