What an exceptional book!
Lauren Sompayrac pulls off the rare trick of making it fun to read and easy to understand without talking down to you in the slightest. In fact, it's clear you are in the hands of an expert. He takes you into the technicalities of the immune response so this is a book where it pays to bring your concentration with you. But don't be put off - you're rewarded with a trip into the fascinating and miraculous world of immunisation. As a non-medical reader, this was a book full of wonder and your admiration for the body's immune system just grows and grows. Lauren Sompayrac is so good at guiding you to an understanding and appreciation of the complexity of the immune system that I got his other book, too ('How Pathogenic Viruses Think').
