“Overall I would recommend this book highly – the tow strongest points are the absolutely brilliant organisation and the very high quality of illustration. The information is thorough without being intimidating, and well explained without being patronising.” (Veterinary Practice, 1 November 2013)
“Regardless of one’s approach to teaching of veterinary infectious diseases, this book should be an excellent instructional tool. Although intended for students in veterinary microbiology, it is extremely comprehensive and has sufficient scope and depth to be used by graduate students as well.” (Journal of The American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 June 2012)
“Overall, this is a well-written, logically organized, informative, and valuable resource, which covers both the laboratory aspects and clinical features of veterinary microbial diseases. Both the first and last sections are unique to most microbiology book. This second edition has made substantial improvements over the first edition.” (Doody’s, 13 April 2012)
“The new edition of ‘Veterinary Microbiology and Microbial Disease’ is an absolutely first-rate textbook of veterinary microbiology … When a second-year veterinary student referred to Quinn and others as the ‘bright-coloured book’, demonstrating to me that we already had it in the library and that students were using it, I could breathe a sigh of relief that they were in safe hands with this superb book.” (Veterinary Record, 24 March 2012)
