LDASEPA supported the development of this reference book and recommend it for professionals as well as lay persons who want to truly understand tick-borne diseases.

“This book is comprehensive, readable, practical, helpful, and in more than a few instances, funny. I would be surprised if all readers, no matter what their relationship to tick-borne disease, could not get something immediately useful from this text.”
