Subjective - head to the library and see what suits you
on 13 May 2009
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.
