Unlike standard texts, which only teach mouse and primate immunology, Tizzard's book introduces the reader to the differences found in the immune systems of various species. This makes the book valuable not only for veterinary students but for non-veterinary immunology students, who all too often get the impression that all immune systems look and work like the mouse and human systems.
While it is impossible to provide exhaustive coverage of all topics in a limited scope, Tizzard does a fine job of selecting and highlighting the most important findings and concepts in each area. Numerous illustrations aid in making difficult concepts clear and easy to grasp. He also provides bibliographies for each chapter which allow the reader to pursue more in depth studies.
As with his earlier books Tizzard has again made a worthy contribution to the teaching of immunology. It is certainly to be hoped that this textbook will be widely used not only to teach immunology but also to give students an awareness and appreciation of the many ways in which different species have evolved and specialized their immune systems.
