NOTICE: We urge you to use caution if ordering from We discovered that Amazon fulfilled many 2018 Sanford Guide orders with counterfeit books. We do not believe that 2019 editions have been impacted, but counterfeits of the 2019 editions may show up on Amazon at any time. 


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. We cannot guarantee the authenticity of books sold on Amazon by other sellers, or by Amazon itself.


If you receive a 2018 book that is shrink-wrapped, has fuzzy print, covers that look a little off, or is missing the "Digital Solutions Available" sticker on the back cover, you likely received a counterfeit. Real 2018 Sanford Guides should also measure 4.375" x 6.5" x 0.4375". We cannot guarantee the accuracy of these counterfeit materials, and advise against using them to aid in clinical decision-making.


The Sanford Guide to Antimicrobial Therapy 2019 Pocket Edition is 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 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.
