"Today's immunology, at its current level of complexity, could not be put into 232 pages of text in a more comprehensive, yet accessible, way." - "American Journal of Epidemiology," review of previous edition "The real strength of the book lies in the masterly and clever construction of the colourful, bold annotated diagrams which constitute about half of the book...In my opinion, the authors of this textbook have achieved their aim of making immunology both accessible and fascinating to current and future generations of clinicians."
