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.

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.

Though it's a second hand textbook, the condition was unexpected better than I thought. And the price was reasonable. The leading auther is currently teaching the course and I think it's a highly recommended book for those who's doing immunology.

Very high brow book. Only for those whose career is as an academic immunologist. Bit too much for general immunology nurse / medical student but a great text reference book

This book does have a lot of information that is important for an immunologist but it has problems with explaining it well enough.
