Published Reviews

    " excellent book on all aspects of tropical medicine…including traditional medicine, environmental disorders, psychiatry, and oral health, as well as infections. The system-based and disease-based approach is cross referenced well and is particularly effective in the online version of the book...It is very clinically oriented and should be a great resource for practitioners or students of this subject." - Doody’s 3 stars ***


    "This is an iconic book that has survived for over a century...Attractive, compact as it can be and more colourful than before. The malaria chapter of over 100 pages is a classic - on its own worth purchasing the book - no other tropical book can match this one."
    BMA Book Awards 2009 - judges comments

    "The description of Manson's as a travel medicine text is fitting. For those wishing to have an encyclopedic but yet practical reference on disease in and out of the tropics, Manson's should prove to be a good purchase."
    Travel Medicine and Infectious Disease, March 2009
