As a Consultant at a clinical level and lecturer for many years in related fields to nurses, students, doctors up to senior level, the message of this book needs explanation. To those on the fringe of the subject it may be confusing and an ordeal, and hence feel it not for casual interest (apart from the committed). It is a superb companion to have at hand. I find it incomprehensible that this is sent out for review by reviewers (excellent in their own right) who are not experts in this topic. I could deliver a synopsis of a book on astro-physics but it would not be a review. This book is excellent. It has been a source of comfort for me but should be critically reviewed by people involved in clinical immunology or allied subjects. It is extensive in explaining autoimmune disorders including diagnosis and management, diagnostic tests, transplantation issues with complications and true allergy rather than intolerance. An excellent and indispensable companion.
It should be noted that this is not really a book for the general public, unless you have a sound understanding of immunology (basic scientists, researchers, biomedical scientists, etc), and prior knowledge is assumed.
All in all, I am very pleased with this book and will be referring to it as a solid reference tool in my research. 5/5
I have been getting these for my daughter who is studying medicine and believe it is the best condensed information source available for a student or practitioner. She always comments on how valuable these books are to her. I can say more as I don't use them but hers friends are always borrowing them as well so I think they are valuable to them as well.
