5.0 out of 5 stars OMGoodness This is a very good primer! 13 Jun 2014
By J Spiegel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I primarily requested this book because it's been over 20 years since nursing school, and I was really fuzzy on my Immunology facts! So when the opportunity arose to get the Essentials of Clinical Immunology I jumped on it! I was hoping for a more detailed picture of diabetes mellitus and was a little disappointed because the coverage was pretty brief, but when there's so much to cover, I really couldn't expect each and every topic to be covered in the greatest of detail!
Our teenage son's girlfriend has type 1 diabetes, and I wanted to make sure I was completely up to date on the subject. She's not a stable diabetic - so I wanted a refresher on the subject. If this is what is needed, it's better to go through the American Diabetes Assn.
This book is a great resource for students in med school, nursing school, or those who have Immunological illness. It's not a difficult text to read, and if chock full of pictures and diagrams. The bonus Wiley E-Text makes it very much well worth the cost!
4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful high-level overview 28 May 2014
By Lynellen Perry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Lots of photos, illustrations, tables, and charts color each page. Immunology is a huge field, and each topic in this book is typically covered in multiple thick textbooks. This book is a one-millimeter deep overview of immunology. For example, in the section on vasculitis (about 1.25 pages worth of overview, which is about how much info Wikipedia has on vasculitis), there isn't even enough information to help a doctor make a clinical diagnosis; it takes 193 pages for "Vasculitis in Clinical Practice" (978-1849962469) to cover that. So while this book is a great basic introduction, ultimately it barely scratches the surface.
5.0 out of 5 stars A nice primer on Immunology, at a fairly high level. 15 May 2014
By Jesse D. Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Maybe "primer" isn't the right word. This book is appropriate for those in medical school, or practicing as physicians. It's also nice for someone like me: pursuing a PhD in Biology, and interested in filling in the gaps in my knowledge regarding physiology and associated subjects. It's full of technical terms though, so if you haven't had some basic foundational courses or reading recently, it might be a bit overwhelming. That said, the illustrations are good, the text is readable (if presented at a somewhat advanced level), and the book is up to date on the diagnosis and treatment of immunological dysfunction. For being published by Wiley, the book isn't nearly as horribly expensive as some of their other texts.

That said, if cost is still an issue, the 5th edition (2006) is often available a bit more inexpensively and is quite similar: Essentials of Clinical Immunology

Thieme also has a similar text, their Color Atlas of Immunology (Thieme Flexibook), that is also nice, if a bit smaller and perhaps more dated. It's quite reasonably priced used though, if you just want a book for the fundamentals.

Anyway, while this is not a full-on textbook like Clinical Immunology: Principles and Practice, it is an excellent, up-to-date book, and likely contains enough information on immunology for most medical practitioners.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good Continued Reference for ICU/Anesthesia Nurse 15 May 2014
By Mrs. Night Owl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
First of all, I'm a bit of a nerd. I've worked in high acuity ICUs and also in prep for anesthesia school. Often times immunology isn't a well-covered subject, but this book does a great job filling the gap.
The information is scientific and clinical enough to be relevant to a person practicing in a hospital, but it's not so crazy as a true medical text might be (where things are broken down to chemical composition and reactions). I did find myself reading about situations I tend to run across (anaphylaxis, for example) wishing they were a tad more in-depth. That's OK though - this book gives a good starting point and/or refresher of the big picture.

One of the key strengths of the book is how it's organized by body region or type of immunity issue. This makes a clear cut boundary when looking for specific issues
For someone practicing in a surgical ICU, the section on transplants is a bit weak. That's the only area I found disappointing in the whole book... perhaps because I'm already knowledgeable in that regard. I would've liked to see that expanded though.

Overall, this is a solid text for someone who needs some extra help understanding immunology with a clinical focus. It's not going to be your reference/bible, but it will certainly provide a good understanding. I guess that goes with the territory of a book entitled "Essentials of..."

Recommend.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative and explained in a very understandable way, no matter where you are on the educational ladder. 15 May 2014
By Elizabeth Mack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My head hurts from how much I learned from this book! Packed with tons of information, but written in such a manner that I could comprehend it easily, for the most part. I am still working my way through it, (it's not a weekend read, obviously) but I absolutely love the way it's laid out and the way things are explained. Very very helpful.
