“This volume is an excellent ‘road map’ for practicing microbiologists … . The field of coverage is wide … . … This nicely presented book should be on the shelves of libraries in academic institutions and food research organisations. … I am pleased to have the book on my shelf as a summary of knowledge and a guide to the more specific literature on dairy microbiology.”
