Parasites are the most successful life-forms on Earth. Every animal is, at one time or another, the home of a parasite. Humankind itself may be a parasite, one that preys on the entire Earth. If we are to promote the flourishing of life in all its diversity, we must learn the ways of Parasite Rex.

Fearsome Fauna: A Field Guide to the Creatures That Live in You by Authors: Roger M. Knutson April 1999 Avg. Customer Rating:
Price Range: about $10
From the Publisher HYPOCHONDRIACS BEWARE-would you believe the nastiest creatures in the known universe live inside our bodies? Finding a home and producing offspring in our internal spaces, parasites drink our blood, eat our cells, and infest our muscles. Not much can be said in their favor, except that they are truly fascinating.
Fearsome Fauna is a wickedly amusing and startlingly informative look into the secret world of these parasites. From their lowly beginnings ("Life for a young hookworm begins in a pile of dung and for most of them it goes downhill from there") to their physical appearance ("In a contest for first prize ugly, tapeworms at any stage of their development would win hands down, if they had hands") and sexual practices ("many internal parasites are hermaphroditic; probably a good choice considering the difficulty of finding a mate in the bewildering darkness of our interior") author Roger Knutson tells you everything you always wanted to know about parasites but were too disgusted or terrified to ask.

ISBN: 0971987602 Paperback: 179 pages Publisher: Health Reflections Book Corp.

Reviewer: John M. Besser, MS (Minnesota Department of Health) Description: This is a standard text used in colleges and universities that provides an overview of clinical manifestations of disease, epidemiology, and diagnostic procedures. Purpose: It is written for education and reference, and the principal objective in updating the 1992 edition is to include new information about parasite taxonomy, diseases, and diagnostic procedures. This objective is critical for the intended use of the text, and is fully achieved. Audience: According to the authors, and in my judgment, it is written for medical students, physicians, and medical technologists. The authors are well known and credible authorities in the field. Features: This is a general text on parasitology, and all aspects are covered, including an overview of the relationship between parasite and host, laboratory diagnostic methods, and detailed descriptions of individual disease agents, their clinical presentation, epidemiologic features, and treatment. There is an excellent balance of descriptive text, tables, diagrams, and photographs needed for laboratory identification. Unfortunately, there is a lack of consistency with the use of citations. For instance, in Chapter 3, five studies on the prevalence of Cryptosporidium spp were mentioned, but there were no citations in the text or at the end of the chapter. In contrast, there were excellent citations in Chapter 6.
Assessment: This text is an excellent vehicle for education and an important reference source. Although not as detailed in diagnostic procedures as Garcia's Diagnostic Medical Parasitology (ASM Press, 1997), this text provides a better overview and descriptions of epidemiologic aspects of parasitic disease. This text includes critical new information for the intended audience that easily justifies publication of this new edition.
