Format: Paperback
I have Roitt's Immunology and Janeway's Immunobiology at my disposal as well, but neither presents material as simply and clearly as Kuby Immunology.
The strength of the book is largely in the fantastic illustrations. The generic illustrations supplemented with large blocks of staid text one finds in other immunology books can't even begin to compare. Concentrated study of the figures in this book elucidates many concepts that seem difficult to describe otherwise.
Additionally, the book is divided up into many short chapters on subjects like B and T cell maturation, hypersensitivity, the T-cell receptor, etc. The superb organization is logical and easy to follow, making review and independent study a pleasure.
There's certainly more advanced books on specific topics, but Kuby Immunology is a great starter and basic reference.

This text is a required reading at UC Berkeley - it is very thorough and detailed oriented. It has come complexities as well, thus a course in Biochemistry/Org.Chem and/or Genetics can be helpful. I highly recommend it to anyone who wish to study advance Immuno first hand.

Format: Paperback
This book provides a good basic over view of immunology. As with all science text/reference books it is out of date the second it is publish. However, for a senior/grad level class it is good. I use this book as a starting point whenever there is an immunology topic of discussion. Any details beyond over view can be found doing other types of searches.
