Editorial Reviews

Review

Immunobiology is widely regarded as an outstanding general immunology textbook, equally at home on the bookshelf of an undergraduate as on that of a professor emeritus. Immunobiology is, and remains, one of the most comprehensive and clear texts on the subject, and is of use to a wide audience; this sixth edition is the most impressive one yet.

Format: Paperback
I'm a beginner at immunology, and I have almost no immunological background. My boss, who is a medical doctor that's published and has been cited in this book, recommended this book to me, so that I may catch up to understand his research and build a foundation in immunology.

This is one of the only books I've ever been able to read on my own and actually understand and digest all the material. And everything beyond the first chapter is absolutely new material to me, but this book just made learning immunology easy and fun. It's probably the only textbook I'd ever use as free-reading material and actually enjoy. As one of the reviewers has mentioned, the best feature about this book is the "cartoons" that illustrate pretty complex biological mechanisms. I learn things visually, and I can't emphasize just how well the cartoons help me understand what I can't normally pick up from just reading the text. And, they're also really cutely drawn. From the standpoint of a beginner in Immunology, this book is probably one of the best textbooks.

This book rocks. It is unbelievably well written and can be used by immunology students at all levels. Each chapter begins by explaining how what you are about to read fits into the big picture, it then explains how the section will be broken down and why as well as where in the book such subjects will be further discussed. As each section begins, another review pulls the details out from under the microscope and back into their place in the overall function. There are fabulous diagrams and each one has additional explanations written slightly differently than the body of the text, so if you didn't understand when reading thru the chapter, there is a 2nd chance for achieving understanding by reading the diagram explanations. All too often, texts this technical get lost in detail and and leave students with a fragmented understanding and lots of frustration. Not so with this text. Even thru the tuffest most technical parts when memory and understanding may get muddy, this book keeps you well aware of where your understanding fell off, you still have the big picture and a chronology that instills confidence in continuing through the material with a successful outcome.

I am a first year medical student and I use this text as my primary immunology resource because it is superb. The chapters are very well organized by logical process, rather than arbitrarily divided into cell type. The writing is clear and concise, but certainly not spare on details -- Janeway includes the most modern information and current research.

Diagrams are plentiful, detailed and helpful; the book also comes with a CD that allows all of the diagrams to be downloaded to your computer.

Nearly every imaginable immunology topic, from normal self-recognition development, to specifics on innumerable autoimmune diseases, is covered.

For undergraduates this is probably the only immunology book you'll need; for medical and graduate students, this is an invaluable work.

... a lot of people are saying this is a good "starter book" or it's very basic- HOWEVER - I find the sentences to be very lengthy and written in a manner that is hard to understand. I am not a med student, but I did complete my BS in bio not more than 5 years ago. This book is a hard read for me- perhaps I need more review in molecular bio.

This book is, without a doubt, the best introduction for studying the field of immunobiology. Very easy to grasp the concepts without all the hype.

This text contains a wealth of information, probably anything you could ever want to know, about immunology. It is well presented and easily accessible with good figures and pictures.

It's only downfall is that it is very dense. A ton of information crammed into a few pages. If you plan to read this text to learn about immunology, have your coffee ready, because you're going to need to be juiced up to pick up all the details that are embedded end to end in the text.

Final Verdict: great reference book if you want to look up a fact that you are already interested in or if you are already well versed in immunology...a difficult book to learn immunology from.

This is a good book if you have a good instructor to give you the big picture, but it is incredibly dense. It goes into too much detail on things like the the long list of proteins involved with a given reaction, but then neglects to explain the overall signficance of the reaction.

Format: Paperback
Full of illustrations and has interactive content which is somewhat useful. The pictures or cartoons are not as attractive or memorable as other texts. The side bars have a number of useful, easy to learn facts. This book seems caught between wanting to be read, and wanting to be comprehensive. It falls short of both a bit, but is one of the best choices around for subject matter.
