Format: Paperback
Surprised to see others found the order of this book confusing. I personally switched to this book after finding Janeway's Immunobiology impossible for that exact reason. I felt this set it out in a much better order than Janeway's in which I felt myself forever flicking from chapter to chapter to try and construct anything in a logical order of processes. Not to mention the >50 page index of janeways which may have been necessary but I found very irritating as I was having to use it every 5 minutes. This book pretty much sets things out in chronological order..starting with innate immunity, moving on to different aspects of adaptive immunity and finishing with some other sub-topics such as autoimmunity, mucosal immunity, hypersensitivity which mirrored my lectures nicely.

This book did lack in detail a little, just occassionally I referred to Janeway's for a few things.

From other peoples opinions it seems like you should definitely head to the library and check the books out for yourself before spending loads of money on anything.

The only reason that I gave the book 3 and not 2 stars is because of the full illustration accompanying the chapters. Other than that it is quite difficult to follow. Better write down the acronyms as you go along or else you will be lost. Very limited index.

It is a shame that the text in this book is so poor as the colour illustrations are very good. The authers seem to hope that the avaerage reader has a strong grasp of basic immunology as this is covered poorly if at all. In fact in some sections I found myself reading the book with my biological dictionary as unfamiliar terms were used freely with no introduction. I would strongly reccomend against buying this text for someone who is looking to learn the basics of immunology and probably would not consider it as an advanced text either.

This book, in places (most of them), manages to totally confound. There seems to be little logic to the order of text and items really are discussed with no introduction as to what they are (as mentioned in previous reviews) . I have found very little use for this book and have needed to look elsewhere. I recommend that you do likewise.

Format: Paperback
As others have said, the only thing preventing this from being terrible are the illustrations, which are excellent, along with the StudentConsult access which is also useful. The topics seem to be all over the place, making it an effort to find almost anything. For students totally new to immunology it is also difficult to grasp the abreviations (and believe me, immunology is *full* of them!) without constant trips back to the glossary.

I only purchased a copy as it was the suggested text for one of my modules, and I have not yet found an alternative - therefore I would only recommend buying this if you really have to!

The book explains the immunological processes occuring in the body in an easy way for students to understand.The digrams are clear and very eye catching so therefore easy to remember.
