What is the best adult infectious disease book to study

Mandell or Southwick: The premier ID text is Mandel, Principles and Practice of Infectious Diseases. However, it is encyclopedic and expensive (>$400), better as a reference than initial training. Shorter and cheaper is Southwick, Infecious Diseases: A Clinical Short Course, but I have no experience with it. Or read the ID-related chapters of an adult internal medicine text, such as Cecil Textbook of Medicine (~$200).

If you're serious about ID - Mandel is the way to go... Indeed they've just come out with a new edition. See if you can buy a used one on-line or try the nearest medical school library??
