Immunology is the study of all aspects of the host defence against infection challenge, including the adverse consequences of such defence mechanisms. It is a broad ranging discipline that touches almost all aspects of human health and well-being.

'Immunology: Essential and Fundamental 3E' is the new edition of a text that teaches the ideas and concepts of immunology as well as the facts and the detail. It encourages students to question the obvious and explore the implications of the material they learn.

This new edition is now in full colour throughout, and maintains its pedagogic impact: sidebars present real-life applications, clinical uses or research material for the interested reader; metaphors and song lyrics link the content to popular culture and daily life, thus enabling the student to think beyond the course parameters and about the overall importance of immunology; and the wide margins, boxes, tables and diagrams ensure that the format is attractive and easy to read.

For the first time 'Immunology: Essential and Fundamental 3E' will have a companion website to offer additional information and to enhance the understanding of the subject. The reader of this book will appreciate the knowledge gained from it, and also the pleasure enjoyed whilst doing the reading.

Review:

This book emphasizes the concept that an accurate history and a thorough, comprehensive physical examination form the basis of diagnosis and management of pediatric illnesses. The highlight of the book is its precise, succinct presentation in an uncomplicated format. This update comes three decades after the first edition was published in 1980.

The book is intended for students, residents, and family practitioners, as well as other less experienced pediatric providers. The authors hope to get students ready, excited, and eager to elicit an accurate account of the reasons for the visit and gather enough information to help diagnose and manage the malady.

Experienced clinicians should find the book a refreshing review that can confirm current practices or provide an update and review.

This is an outstanding review of the art and science of the physical examination of children and adolescents and covers all aspects, from skin to the viscera, head to toe, and newborns to young adults. The coverage is based on organ systems, with the stress on defining the normal and then describing and pointing out the abnormal findings that lead one to the correct diagnosis, a practical approach.

The book is a treasure trove of accurately presented information about a skill that is essential to the success of any physician diagnosing and treating children. It is simple, readable, highly accurate, and offers extensive details on many aspects of an often neglected skill. The large number of pictures, graphics, and mnemonics are also helpful and should help students immensely.

Experienced clinicians who depend on the history and physical examination will tell you to listen to the mother, the child, and the nurse (hear), examine (use your eyes and your touch), then make a diagnosis and confirm it by doing a few labs! This book certainly should help all aspiring pediatricians and primary care providers to accomplish that goal.

This one is recommended strongly as an excellent teaching tool and a resource for pediatricians, students, residents, and primary care physicians.

Weighted Numerical Score: 91 - 4 Stars! --Rajasekharan Warrier, MD(Ochsner for Children), Doody's Reviews
