Janis Kuby’s groundbreaking introduction to immunology was the first textbook for the course actually written to be a textbook. Like no other text, it combined an experimental emphasis with extensive pedagogical features to help students grasp basic concepts. Now in a thoroughly updated new edition, Kuby Immunology remains the only undergraduate introduction to immunology written by teachers of the course. In the Kuby tradition, authors Jenni Punt, Sharon Stranford, Patricia Jones, and Judy Owen present the most current topics in an experimental context, conveying the excitement of scientific discovery, and highlight important advances, but do so with the focus on the big picture of the study of immune response, enhanced by unsurpassed pedagogical support for the first-time learner. Punt, Stranford, Jones, and Owen bring an enormous range of teaching and research experiences to the text, as well as a dedication to continue the experiment-based, pedagogical-driven approach of Janis Kuby. For this edition, they have worked chapter by chapter to streamline the coverage, to address topics that students have the most trouble grasping, and to continually remind students where the topic at hand fits in the study of immunology as a whole.
Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:
⭐A wonderful book that I high recommend! Particularly for antivaxxers! Since they’re already experts in the immune system, this should just be a light read!It’s 900 pages of beautifully illustrated major histocompatibility complexes, TCR peptide chains, cytokines production, CLR signaling pathways, MHC polymorphism, IFN- gamma, IL-4 and IL-6 production, and everything else one needs to know to properly “research” immunology in order to make educated decisions for themselves and their family! One of my personal favorites; it’s definitely a MUST!
⭐I disliked that the loose pages were not placed in a folder!!! they were indeed completely loose! I work at the University of Athens, Greece, I am Prof. in Immunology and teach Immunology at under- and post-graduate level to more than 180 students per year. I expected to receive the loose pages in a folder together with a CD with the text, figures, animations, lecture presentation, videos, etc, as I received with the 7th edition of Kuby which I bought from another source. I am very disappointed and will never use or recommend Amazon to any of my colleagues or students.
⭐As far as the book itself, this is wonderful and five stars. Four stars from me for this review because though I rented this book, it arrived completely beat up. The cover was taped on and it was still filled with other people’s notes – not a big deal, I just don’t want to have to be pinned with the responsibility and pay for a piece of crap upon return. It Arrived on time. The material in this book is fantastic – I actually wish I would have bought a brand new copy.
⭐The quality of the book inside is great, but for the hight price, it’s shame that the cover is damaged. It’s look like it’s used unfortunately.
⭐If you are in a course that requires this textbook don’t buy the ebook!!! Buy the physical book. The ebook doesn’t have page numbers so if you get an assignment with page numbers you won’t know what pages correspond in the ebook.
⭐This is a comprehensive and well written textbook on the immune system. The illustrations are excellent and I recommend for anyone studying biological sciences.
⭐I paid $82 for this rental…it is clearly in awful condition. I was planning on buying it eventually, but there’s absolutely no way that’s happening. This book, in this condition, should be sold for its rental price. Delivery was fine, the box was in perfect condition so it wasn’t the delivery person.One star rating for the book’s physical condition. It’s an otherwise excellent textbook.
⭐Many of the pages were folded and bent, however I am able to use the book as intended.
⭐Fantastically clear diagrams and explanations. The way the book is organised makes perfect sense and is great for really solidifying immunological understanding. The book is fully referenced which allows easy linkage to the primary literature. Thank you!
⭐Focusing on human immunology, this book goes into great detail without being to verbose.
⭐nice book .no major changes from 7th edition
⭐An excellent textbook for understanding the fundamentals of human immunology. The only thing I wish for is that it could be possible for someone who has bought the book version could have a code to access the ebook so that the animations (that are available with ebook) could be accessed too.
⭐Ok. It’s perfect. Thank you very much.
