Let's face it. Print guides aren't great for the environment, but Sanford Guide is doing what we can to reduce the impact for those who prefer print over digital. We do what we can to minimize what goes to the landfill, and also ship books in low-impact packaging whenever possible.

We urge you to use caution if ordering from We discovered that Amazon fulfilled many 2017 and 2018 Sanford Guide orders with counterfeit books, and began selling counterfeits of our 2021 guide in February, 2022. After some initial resistance, we were able to pressure Amazon into removing a counterfeit of our 2021 book by threatening to go to the press, but if you received a book that looks suspicious, please return it to Amazon and request a refund. Amazon does not effectively exclude counterfeits from its storefront, so additional counterfeits may show up on Amazon at any time. Our history of trying to get Amazon to stop trafficking in counterfeits of our books is documented in this New York Times article.


We have set up a Seller account, "Sanford Guide Official," to help combat this problem. Books ordered from the Seller "Sanford Guide Official" are pulled directly from our inventory, are shipped by our staff, and are guaranteed to be authentic. The prices for our books are much higher when sold through Sanford Guide Official in order to offset some (but not all) of the fees that Amazon charges us on all sales. We cannot guarantee the authenticity of books sold on Amazon by other sellers, or by Amazon itself.


The Sanford Guide to Antimicrobial Therapy 2019-2021 Pocket Editions are shrink wrapped, and a unique code is printed on the inside of the back cover. This code is redeemable for a 1-month subscription to the Sanford Guide Collection mobile app. If you attempt to redeem a code that someone else has already redeemed, you will receive a message that your book is most likely a counterfeit and be asked to contact us immediately. If there is no code inside your 2019-2021 Pocket Edition, please contact us immediately.


If you receive a book you suspect is a counterfeit, please contact our customer service department and provide us with the name of the Amazon seller, your order number, and your date of order. If you are able to take a photo of the cover and an interior page and send them to us, this will also be helpful. We will provide you with a discount off a genuine Sanford Guide book. You can request a refund of counterfeit materials from Amazon, but we request that you write "COUNTERFEIT" on the cover so that it is not resold.
