Product Description

Review

"What is not to love about this book? Roitt's Essential Immunology is already considered indispensable for undergraduate biology. As with past editions, it provides a simplified approach to explaining the more complicated immunological processes...as a PhD student, this book still provides a great reference, and help for any immunologist who needs to go back to basics. Every chapter provides many useful examples and great diagrams, which are also available online and ready to download for presentations and essays...Overall this book is a very useful tool in Immunology." Immunology News " "[I]s an easy to read, highly informative textbook, ideal for a medical student or a person looking to specialise in inmmunology" GKT Gazette

Format: Paperback
While this book does contain a lot of essential information it does not amount to a good textbook. I should imagine this is a great book if you already know a lot about or have a massive enthusiasm for immunology, but if not then don't buy it. A lot of the information reads somewhat like a list of data and the explanations are so full of jargon that it does not serve the function of a text book by explaining to someone who does not already know. My lecturer for my immunology module warned my group against this book, I'm sad to say I didn't listen.

Format: Paperback
This book provide good coverage of all aspects of immunology with a friendly narrative voice. There are many helpful colour illustrations which are well explained by the captions. I think this size of book would be suitable for undergraduates in immunology or when beginning a research degree in immunology. When i was a medical student i would have found this book too big for a 10 week immunology course. In fact i got the highest mark simply using Todd's Lecture notes in immunology. However I am now embarking on some research in immunology and this book is a very useful introduction, especially the section on experimental systems e.g immunoprecipitaiton, which gives a succinct overview of strategies I will use in the lab. However, no immunology text is perfect and therefore i find it helpful to cross reference it with Kuby's immunology text.
