Praise for the Second Edition: "...Appealing and relevant for those students who approach the study of the immune system through a clinical lens, including students of medicine, pharmacology, midwifery, or nursing; it would also be appropriate in an introductory immunology course." –Clinical Immunology
“The concise yet thorough account makes it an ideal read for the intended audience....Each section and chapter is clearly documented in a detailed contents section, and each chapter is concisely summarized, creating an accessible and understandable book....The Immune System is a thorough and coherent overview of the modern understanding of immunity.” –Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine

The immune system is a favorite topic of mine. Almost everything which happens to our bodies involves the immune system. So I was very interested in a book which is on a very professional level with current information and excellent writing style. Also I feel that educational graphics are especially important to drive home the information. This book passed all my criteria with flying colors. I really enjoyed studying it and have now read it twice (there's way too much information there to absorb on just one reading!). Almost every process in the human body involves the immune system and learning to minimize inflammation is a huge leg up on feeling good! Everything from sore muscles and joints, strep throat, healing, migraine, every disease known to man, sunburn, and on and on involve inflammation. Learning the mechanisms of inflammation and immunity and how to quiet inflammation and bolster immunity REALLY adds to ones health. I highly recommend this superb book as a way to learn how to baby ones body!
Every single word in every written paragraph is highlighted, save for the occasional 'the' or 'therefore'. It is very difficult to read and see the paragraphs and section breaks.
