Reviewers of the Fourth Edition

Gene Nester, Evans Roberts, and Nancy Pearsall shared a vision many years ago to write a new breed of microbiology textbook especially for students planning to enter nursing and other health-related careers. Today there are other books of this type, but we were extremely gratified to learn that 85% of the students we surveyed intend to keep their copies of Microbiology: A Human Perspective because they feel it will benefit them greatly as they pursue their studies in these fields. We offer special thanks to the many students who used the third edition of Microbiology: A Human Perspective and who shared their thoughts with us about how to improve the presentation for the students who will use this edition of the text.
