This book is yet another product of a publishing pattern that has become familiar to the scientific community. Take an assortment of subjects, rearrange them under a “catchy” title, and then market a grossly overpriced book that simultaneously advertises forthcoming volumes. The result in this case is a mixed bag. Scientific information has proliferated at such a rate that reviews of almost any subject could be written at frequent intervals. Even an incomplete compilation of references on a given subject is often useful, and one can usually glean a few new facts or ideas from most review articles. Thus, excessive criticism of a book such as this puts a reviewer somewhat in the position of attacking religion or motherhood. But, seriously, hasn't this gimmick been overexploited?

is a 492-page collection of 14 chapters by 21 contributors. “Protistan blood diseases” are defined in the foreword as “that group caused by microorganisms which pass a major portion of their lifetime in the blood.”
