Joan Slonczewski and John W. Foster team up to bring college and university students with an effective resource available for rental in their textbook entitled Microbiology: An Evolving Science (Second Edition), ISBN 9780393934472. This text presents readers with the most effective strategies needed to truly grasp the ever-changing world of microbiology. The most up-to-date research is combined with relatable examples for thorough student comprehension of concepts. A visually appealing graphic design program is effectively integrated into the comprehensible narrative which leads students to better envision the significant microbial processes and structures. Professional users of this text boast of its positive attributes including the effective organization, current coverage of concepts offered, as well as high quality graphics and photographs. The leading expert on this writing team is that of Joan Slonczewski. She received her Ph.D. in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University where she studied bacterial motility. After postdoctoral work at the University of Pennsylvania, Slonczewski went on to teach undergraduate microbiology at Kenyon College, where she was awarded a Silver Medal in the National Professor of the Year program of the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education. She is also a veteran writer with numerous research articles published on bacterial pH regulation. Slonczewski has also authored five science fiction novels, including A Door into Ocean, which earned the John W. Campbell Memorial Award. The second contributing member on the efforts of Microbiology: An Evolving Science (Second Edition) is John W. Foster. He received his Ph.D. from Hahnemann University (now Drexel University School of Medicine), in Philadelphia. After postdoctoral work at Georgetown University, he began work at the Marshall University School of Medicine in West Virginia and is currently teaching at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine in Mobile, Alabama.
