Praise for Previous Editions
"An excellent virological text for students. It is recommended in many university undergraduate courses for good reason. It is written in an accessible style... well illustrated... I suspect the self-assessment questions will be usefully plundered by those setting examinations. I have no doubt there will be a third edition."
--TRENDS IN GENETICS
"Excellent... The writing flows easily with good practical examples... An attractive, up-to-date book and is an excellent buy that I can strongly recommend."
--SOCIETY FOR GENERAL MICROBIOLOGY QUARTERLY
"More suitable for an undergraduate class than any other text I have recently seen... Readable and undergraduate friendly, and it fills a definite niche."
--AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR MICROBIOLOGY NEWS
"Compact... and realistically priced... Present[s] molecular virology to an undergraduate audience in an easily digestible form."
--TRENDS IN MICROBIOLOGY
"A short, straightforward, inexpensive paperback that concentrates on the basic principles of molecular virology... Provide[s] a good starting point for non-virologists to rapidly acquire a working knowledge of the area."
--TRENDS IN BIOCHEMISTRY
"Well worth its price... the text is easy to follow and represents a fantastic blend of basic principles, corresponding techniques and applied views."
--ZEIT FUR PFLANZENKRANKHEITEN UND PFLANZENSCHUTZ
"There is a remarkable amount of detail included for so small a book. This well-written text provides a very useable introduction to virology. The information provided is current. It would be a worthwhile addition to the library of teachers of undergraduate virology."
