I was heavily reliant on this book for an immunology course I took as an elective, and while I am impressed by the amount of research and effort that went into this textbook, I wasn't impressed by the presentation of the content. Sure, this book is very detailed, and its scientific journal-like diction helped me a lot when it came down to reading scientific literature, but the material was written in a very convoluted way. It seemed like this was meant for a group of students who were already versed in the topic of immunology,somewhat, and not for people who like me were new to the subject. In some chapters the book would begin talking about one system, move on another system and then loop back around to the first system. Chapter divisions were really nice and so were the summaries because it is very hard to skim over this text to review or look for pertinent information. Some information that took 3 pages to explain were was already evident in a preceding diagram, and could have been summarized onto a single page. I definitely learned a lot from reading the book and the illustrations were great, but I felt that getting through a 50 page chapter took a lot of caffeine and will power- that stuff is dense!

There are already many comments on the content, but I wanted to speak to the format of the Kindle Version. First and foremost, the Kindle version is a "print" format which means it will not work on the black-and-white Kindles -- not even the new Kindle Paperwhite. It needs to render images so only the Kindle Fire series, PCs, MACs, and iPad are supported. I don't know why the Android systems are not supported -- it might be a licensing thing.

Even though this textbook is in "print" format, you will still be able to interact with the text -- highlight words, phrases or sentences; use the dictionary; and even add bubble notes.

Zoomed all the way out, the Kindle version looks exactly like the print version. The added features are more like PDF files -- you can do a search, copy text and paste from it, highlight, and as already mentioned, add notes (in a bubble style like in Adobe).

I bought the physical printed version and the Kindle version at the same time...after a few days pondering the pros/cons of print versus ebook, I returned the printed version, and committed to the Kindle version. Since I'm an Android tablet user, I'm tied to my home computer or laptop when I want to read, but this is no major inconvenience.

I have four graduate level classes this semester, and no physical textbooks. This is the lightest my backpack has ever been.

I have been out of school for more than 20 years, but when I needed to brush up on my immunology, I found Janeway's through an industry associate. It happens to be superbly illustrated, with details and explanations far beyond the text that I used in college. I would highly recommend this book for the student or for someone like myself, who needs a reference book or a refresher.

Format: Paperback
This is the required text for my Immunobiology class. As I slogged through the first chapter, which was a very detailed overview of the immune system I hoped that the going would get easier when I got to the chapters on the individual components of the immune system. Second chapter: still very tough going. This book goes into a lot of detail and has some great figures and micrographs that help display the material. The two main problems is that with so much detail it's "hard to see the forest for the trees". The main points are obscured in a flood of details. The other problem is that the authors tend to jump around a lot. Often you read, "we will discuss this later in the chapter" and they jump to another topic. Really kills the flow and makes it tough to keep at it. So at this point I'd say it's taking about one evening to read 10 pages. The 70 page chapter on the innate immune system didn't get read for my next class. In summary, all the information is there, somewhat obscured by a flood of details. Expect to spend a long time grinding through if you're trying to learn the material with this book.

I am using this book for an immunology class I am in, and it's wonderful so far. There are lots of diagrams and charts that are well explained, and the dialogue of the book is quite easy to digest.

At first I ordered the abridged version of this book but realized half way through the class that it didn't answer some of the deeper questions I had about immunology. Thus I ordered this book and found that it was very helpful in filling in those blanks. I liked all the case studies especially because it helped make the topic more clinically relevant.

I'm not much of a fan of reading an immuno book, but I really enjoyed this one. I will say that this is not an intro level read, but it does break down complicated concepts. The diagrams and animations that accompany this book were easy to follow and really helped solidify some concepts. I think that it's good enough that I kept it . Plus, I got an A- out of the class, so it's a winner in my opinion!

The original volumes of Janeway were deservedly considered classics. They disrupted the paradigm of texty, word-heavy tomes in favor of refreshingly simple, comprehensive, coherent diagrams. This latest volume does include many of the diagrams I remember but they're no longer central to the text.

I actually read my first copy of Janeway cover to cover in about a week - that's how great it was. I will use this latest version as a reference, but the greatness has been lost under the sheer weight of dry text. This feels like a book that was written by committee with an eye on incorporating information rather than teaching this fascinating subject to eager students.

It's probably still better than most of the other immunology texts out there, but it's no longer an autobuy for me.
