Review quote

"Principles of Mucosal Immunology is an excellent book and can be recommended not only to students and professionals that wish to expand their knowledge in immunology but to the tutors of specialized immunology courses too. Furthermore, it is very detailed and clear enough to become one of the first books you reach for whenever a basic question of immunology arises." - Scandinavian Journal of Immunology "The length of the book is optimal, covering most areas of mucosal immunology, and the depth of coverage in each area is appropriately proportioned to the available literature in the field. The quality of the color figures and diagrams are excellent. Expert contributors are internationally recognized leaders in the field of mucosal immunology. Although it has multiple authors, there is uniformity of style. In comparing this book with other textbooks of mucosal immunology, Principles of Mucosal Immunology presents not opinions of particular authors, but collective expert opinions of the Society of Mucosal Immunology with a Board of Counselors established in guiding the development of this book's content, ensuring that the latest paradigms were presented. Therefore, this book represents the most up-to-date and comprehensive mucosal immunology textbook available...Principles of Mucosal Immunology achieves the aim of providing a standard textbook for students of all levels interested in advanced training in mucosal immunology. The book is well organized and has downloadable figures and diagrams to facilitate instructors teaching in classroom settings." - Gastroenterology
