Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Antimicrobial Drug Action Reviews
From the reviews of the sixth edition:
"This sixth edition builds on the successful formula of its predecessors with an accessible small format, clear diagrams and illustrations, key antibiotic structures and an engaging explanatory text. ... the great strength ... is that it has managed to convey the essentials of the topic without ... expanding in girth at each edition. ... this book remains the first port of call for those requiring an overview of the topic or seeking a starting point for more in-depth information on an unfamiliar antimicrobial." (Jonathan H Cove, British Toxicology Society Newsletter, Winter, 2005)
