"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
