How the Immune System Works
How the Immune System Works provides a concise and accessible overview of how the immune system protects us from disease. Written in a lively and engaging style, this unique book makes it easy to see the big picture of the immune system—without any confusing jargon or complex technical details.
Now in its seventh edition, this popular book features an entirely new chapter that describes the role of the immune system in fighting COVID-19, as well as up-to-date information on vaccines, immunotherapies, immunological memory, cancer, and more. This new edition includes a wide range of effective learning features, such as enhanced artwork, “heads up!” boxes that outline each chapter, and an expanding summary figure at the end of each chapter that illustrates the interaction of different parts of the immune system.
How the Immune System Works, Seventh Edition is a must-have for all medical students, bioscience students, veterinary students, nursing students, researchers looking for a quick refresher, and general readers with interest in the subject.
Reviews of the previous edition:
“The voice of the author is one of a true teacher whose enthusiasm for the subject is contagious. There are far too many dry ‘academic’, or ‘scientific’ textbooks around and this book felt very fresh in comparison.”
—Medical Student, University of Texas, South Western Medical Center at Dallas
“This is the book that every student (regardless of level) should read as he or she begins to study immunology.”
—Daniel G. Tenen, M.D. Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School
