    Greetings Dr. Racaniello,
    I emailed a few weeks back regarding the 6th edition book of Parasitic Diseases. I would love the pdf of the 5th edition of the textbook like you had mentioned in TWiP 109. I believe that will hold me over until the 6th edition of the books comes out. Thank you so much for all you do with all of your podcasts!
