Antibiotic Resistance: Understanding and Responding to an Emerging Crisis

Antibiotic resistance is a critical issue for health care providers, misuse or overuse of antibiotics places individuals at risk of infectious diseases becoming incurable. The book starts off slow; however, the introduction is wonderful and explains the basics of how antibiotics work and why they fail. The chapters’ progress in depth exploring the DNA issues behind how bacteria are destroyed. The information provided in this book is presented in a concise and straight-forward manner, and is a necessity for all healthcare personnel. Being in the medical field, I feel that everyone would benefit from reading this book to enable individuals as patient’s to grasp why providers do not easily prescribe antibiotics, and the reason this is now becoming the focus current and future practice.
