Media reviews
Because of the increasing importance of prions to public health, and the burgeoning rate of discovery in prion biology, this is a timely occasion for a second edition of the book Prion Biology and Diseases. As with the first edition (published in 1999), the extensively revised and updated second edition is edited and substantially written by Stanley Prusiner. The book is comprehensive, authoritative, accessible and, for the most part, exciting to read. It will serve admirably as a standard of the new science of prionology for scientists, physicians and students. Nature Cell Biology The Editor hoped this book would stimulate and tempt young investigators to prion research. It certainly informs the novice that there is more to prions than mad cows and cannibals! And for the established researcher? This book should make a useful reference text as data from an extensive number of studies are contained within the same volume.
