Publisher's Summary

Microbiology, along with mathematics, chemistry, and physics, is one of the fundamental branches of basic sciences. The knowledge and detailed study of microorganisms and their functions can establish its use in a variety of applications, from medical, food and environmental, to the agricultural and industrial fields. Thus, microbiology is consolidated as one of the pillars of biotechnology. In this specification we examine modern general microbiology, which is aimed to study morphology, staining processes, physiology, metabolism, characterization and identification of microorganisms.

Bad

The narrator clearly is unfamiliar with the subject, and mispronounces almost all technical words. In addition, either the narrator is simply ignoring punctuation, or the book was translated into English from another language using nothing but google translate. You'd do better reading the Wikipedia page for microbiology than getting this book.

Quite Poorly Executed

I found this title weak enough that I returned it. There were grammatical errors and factual inaccuracies as well as weak organization. The narration contained so many mispronunciations that I consider it a disservice to new learners (exactly who such an item is targeting). The most laughable narration error was the mispronunciation of cocci as coconuts!

weird

bizarre pronunciations and strange words and phrases thrown in like "she thin and young," or "money talks," that make it difficult to understand.

Nice summary of basic microbiology

It is good introductory to basic microbiology. It is good for reference or revision if you are studying. It summarise the basics building blocks of microbiology concisely.
