Like the first edition, this book focuses on the more common travel health problems. There is more information on special-risk groups such as senior travellers, pregnant women, children and the immunocompromised, and new sections on bioterrorism and migration medicine. Information on deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolus, as it relates to travel, has been updated. There is a very useful, short bibliography after most sections and many of the articles are from the authoritative Journal of travel medicine.
