Published Review: This edition has a number of new chapters, as well as expansion and updating of the chapters from the previous version. A new chapter on "laboratory investigation" complements the chapter on "how to carry out a field investigation".The text is easy to read and the format allows the reader to access information quickly on a specific pathogen or disease, making it a useful reference text.This is a first-class book, which is both readable and a comprehensive reference text. It should be in the library of every poultry practice or general practice that aspires to do poultry work.The Veterinary Record, May 2008The book aims to be the definitive standard reference work on current health and disease issues relevant to anyone involved in working with poultry, with an emphasis on the poultry industry. The editors have done an excellent job of condensing a diverse wealth of knowledge into an acessible format. A large international team of contributors and UK editors, who are active and renowned in their particular fields, has written the chapters and this provides new approaches and ideas. There is good use of high-quality photographs and diagrams, with the easy layout allowing information to obtained quickly. This is a much-needed textbook that provides detailed information on poultry diseases, and is of interest to veterinarians working with small-scale and large-scale poultry-keeping situations.
