This is hands down the best general microbiology textbook on the market. Below, I'll explain why. (And I will also defend the book against some of the more ridiculous comments):

1) Let's be honest. Some students who read textbooks aren't too bright or motivated. So you should completely ignore ANYBODY who says the book was worthless. He/She was probably frustrated with the class they were in, and blamed the prof, their TA, the book, and life in general for getting a bad grade or having a bad time. Common sense tells us that a book that has gone through 11 editions is way above average. Most textbooks don't make it past the 1st or 2nd ed.

2) This book is not meant to delve into excruciating detail. While the book does contatin a LOT of detail on some topics, most aren't that detailed. The reason is because it's an introductory text. If you want more information, then buy a book that focuses on that one area. So, criticisms that say the book was "too general" are silly.

3) The book does a great job of overviewing every possible topic under the sun related to microbiology. The book covers basic cell biology, foundations of microbiology, molecular biology, diversity, metabolism, immunology, pathogenesis, disease, and even a little biotechnology.

4) It's true that the book could be organized a little better. In particular, it's frustrating to have to flip back and forth between chapters on metabolic diversity and prokaryotic diversity. However, I can't really suggest a better way to do it.

5) As an undergrad, I used this book in two different courses, and enjoyed it both times. As a grad student, I still find myself referring back to it on occasion.

In summary, if you're looking for a good introductory text to microbiology, you're not going to find anything better than this.

I'm a lower division biochemistry major about to transfer to a University next year. I have to be honest, I took general biology I and II and got "C's" in both because I went in having no biology background. Now I'm teaching myself all the gaps that I didn't have in major's biology. This is the best book I have ever used in self-teaching (and I've used quite a few.) I love chemistry and this book does an excellent job of connecting the fascinating concepts of chemistry (electrochemistry and thermodynamics) to microorganisms. It is very thorough and easy to read if you actually like science.

First of all, I am not the type of person who likes to read. That being said, this book is very well written and very easy to understand. For the first time ever in my life, I actually enjoyed reading this book. Even if you're not taking any microbiology class, I'd still recommend this book, if you're interested in science at all.

Yes, like any book, this one may have a few things missing. But it does cover all of the standard information necessary for a firm grasp of microbiology. I was thoroughly pleased with the content and I have been studying microbial biochemistry for years. Though I wished there was more information on bioremediation, I understand why they left it out: I just checked out a book on just mycoremediation techniques and it was well over 800 pages! I was glad that Brock Microbology book successfully covered the general ideas before I leaped into advanced material.

The authors/editors definitely put a lot of thought into this one to make your microbial experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

Bought this knowing it was an older edition, but only used it as quick reference. Covered all of the topics necessary and seems to have 95% of the newest edition. Just a little differently organized.

Detailed, great illustrations, all around well put together book on microorganisms.

I needed this textbook for my microbiology class and I ALWAYS come to Amazon first to search for my textbooks. The campus bookstore will mark the prices up because they know that a great deal of students will purchase from them. Any time that I can purchase a textbook from Amazon, I do. This book was probably between $50-$100 cheaper than the bookstore. I have one complaint about the textbook and that is the reason I gave it only 4 stars. The complaint is that while the textbook is available as an e-text (you are provided with a code to utilize this feature), the version of e-text is available ONLY via computer. I have the Pearson E-text app for my iPad and this textbook is not available as an e-text on my iPad. I substitute my iPad for my computer in class, so that I don't have to carry my laptop around and it would be much more versatile if it was available on the iPad. Other than that, the textbook is perfect. It came shrink-wrapped and in great condition. Also, another great thing is that you can sell your textbook back to Amazon. Your compensation is in the form of an Amazon credit/gift card. I would recommend this product to any college student on a budget or who just want to save a few bucks on textbooks.
Awesome.
