Abstract

[Extract] The reinforcement of travel health advice with written health information has become an integral part of travel medicine practice, and Malaria: a traveller's guide is a major step forward in addressing this need with respect to this potentially dangerous tropical disease. This is a completely revised a updated successor to Martine Maurel's "A Layman's Guide to Malaria," originally published in 1994 and revised in 2001. The book's concise writing style makes it easy to read. It is well researched as well as consistent and systematic in its presentation. Visual impact could have been heightened by the incorporation of more illustrations and photographs; however, this book was clearly intended to be a lower cost publication, affordable to the appropriate target groups in the community, including travelers.
