Review:

"Immunology is a hard subject. This book makes it easy! There are many drawings, and this really makes it easier to understand. Also, the authors have made a genius thing by starting the paragraphs with a bolded text giving just the information one need to get an overview. The summaries are good, giving the reader a possibility to get familiar with the chapter before reading it." Medical Student, University of Bergen, Norway

"What we know about the immune system is constantly changing and books are often lacking new details even before they are printed. Dr. Abbas, as senior editor, has made a serious attempt to incorporate this growing body of knowledge in this book. Those who already own the sixth edition might not want to invest in this update, but for those working with the 5th edition or earlier, this may be a good time to upgrade.

Although it is intended for a basic immunology course for medical students, graduate students and dental students could easily make good use of it.

As always Dr. Abbas and his coeditors have provided an excellent source of information about the immune system. The book is readable and the figures illustrate concepts very nicely." - Marion C. Cohen, PhD(University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-NJMS), Doody’s Review
