"The book is another of the successful endeavours of the authors to teach basic immunology to beginners and summarise the main concepts of science in an easily readable way...Basic Immunology is an excellent up-to-date piece of work that covers all the major topics of immunology. The text is comprehensible and the concepts are written in a way that will satisfy the non-specialist reader and will keep their interest high till the end...To sum up, this is fine textbook, addressed mainly to those of a non-immunological background...it is a good start for undergraduate students or the general public who wish to make their first attempt to grasp immunological concepts."
