"In all, while written as a clinically-relevant companion for an immunology text, this book can stand alone as a wonderful resource for any clinical immunologist and can serve as an excellent teaching aid for anyone studying immunology or training in a field that cares for patients with immune disorders." (The World Allergy Organization, 1 August 2011) "[This book] effectively accomplishes its stated goals. This well-written and easy-to-read book covers a wide variety of topics ... and provides a wealth of experience in a patient-oriented format. The editors of this book succeed in moving readers from beginning to end using this case-based approach. [This book] offers a number of teaching possibilities and could be useful in teaching immunology when combined with current textbooks." ( JAMA, April 2010)
