Media reviews

'... the style is exemplary and there are many felicitous phrases and comparisons which help to lighten the text and make the whole thing a delight to read ... This book certainly fulfils admirably its primary function of providing an introductory undergraduate textbook and gives a more comprehensive and clearer exposition of almost all aspects of animal parasitology than many other considerably more expensive hardback textbooks.' Biologist 'This is a straightforwardly written textbook which successfully introduces the undergraduate and the nonspecialist to the more arcane literature. It presents the material clearly, interestingly and with a typically British sense of humour, all of it which makes it a pleasure to read.' Lorenzo Savioli, Bulletin of the World Health Organization 'This book is a wonderful introduction to the field of parasitology.' International Journal for Parasitology '... a well-rounded view of parasitology.' BIOSIS
