The authors and editors have taken pains to make the text clinician-friendly...The page layout is pleasing to the eye and easy to use. - JAMA, review of the last edition

.the basics of immunology are rapidly expounded with summaries, tables, and diagrams providing a depth of information on immunological mechanisms in an eye-catching format... The editors and contributors are to be congratulated on this work and I would suggest it would be a valuable reference for those working in the field. - British Society for Immunology, May 2009
