First Sentence
All the cellular elements of blood, including the red blood cells that transport oxygen, the platelets that trigger blood clotting in damaged tissues, and the white blood cells of the immune system, derive ultimately from the same progenitor or precursor cells-the hematopoietic stem cells in the bone marrow. Read the first page

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book for my degree in molecular biology and it has been one of the many text books I bought in freshers week that has actually come down off the shelf a few times.I have found it to be both comprehensive and readable at the same time.The bright and bold diagrams are a nesessary aid to conceptsualising the ever more confusing aspects of both the adaptive and innate immune systems .The book eases you in gently but progresses on to the more advanced areas of complement and the genetics of HLA.All in all a very worth while buy for all general aspects of immunology.

Format: Paperback
This book, as it is slightly old, only considers the self/non-self/infectious-non-self mechanism of immunology. As the relatively new danger hypothesis of Polly Matzinger is obviously correct, due to the vast amount of evidence, this book does not consider this theory in its application in all areas, including vaccination, breast feeding, pregnancy, puberty, transplantation, and cancer. Although many individuals, and schools teach the old theory... it is wrong! Although the book, is very good, it is out of date, and if you are considering buying an immunology book, please research Matzingers danger hypothesis (which can expertly explain all of the above immunological responses). I advise those who need the book for university to read her papers, or buy a book which uses her point of view as it will really help with your assignments. To gain a really good understanding of immunology please watch and memorise her lecture [...] I memorised pretty much every word of this presentation, and gained 80% in my immunology exam in my final year of a biomedical science degree.

Format: Paperback
This new edition is an up-to-date review of the main topics in immunology. All chapters are clearly written and they are really understandable even for those with a very basic background in immunology. However, all topics are explained in depth. Figures are well designed and are really helpful. This is a book that it's worth the money you pay. Probably, the best immunology textbook you can buy. Simply excellent.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was recommended this book and I found it quite a disapointment. The CD-ROM does little to back up the text, although it is quite interesting in its own right. The book has a very vivid colourscheme, and an illustration style which attempts to make immunology seem sexy, which it definately is not. The diagrams put me in mind of the instruction booklets in LEGO, where all the pieces fit together perfectly, which obviously in reality they don't. The diagrams are often over-simplified but at the same time there is too much information to take in and the captions are insufficient. There's some very nice diagrams in there and obviously a lot of money was spent on them, but they are often confusing and either contain far too much detail or far too little and seem pointless. The book isn't arranged in logical chapters: you can't sit down and read about one specific subject because it'll be spread over 4 or 5 different chapters and this makes things hard to follow.
On the other hand, there are excellent journal references everywhere and the sections regarding B and T Cell development are great; this book has the best descriptions of the mechanisms of apoptosis in the immune system of any book I've seen. The autoimmunity section is based entirely around one theory and makes little if no mention of others. The Appendices are a good reference as they list all the cytokines and CD proteins which is excellent.
I would recommend this as a backup to other texts, but I would not rely on it for exams or coursework.
