This is one of the best reviews of transplantation I have had the pleasure of reading. With its thorough collection of topics and its illustrations, it is a definite must read for those who are starting their training or spending a limited amount of time on a transplant service. (Doody s, 19 April 2013) This is a superbly produced small book with marvellous illustrations, and I am literally amazed how much information is presented in approximately 100 pages. The illustrations have been very carefully done and enhance the explanations in the text extremely well. The chapters range from a history of transplantation through organ donation and preservation; the immunology of organ transplantation; immunosuppression; complications of immunosuppression, and kidney, pancreas, liver, intestinal, and lung transplantations, finishing up with brief reviews of composite tissue transplantation and xenotransplantation. This is the ideal book to give to nurses or residents rotating through a transplantation unit or to scientists working in tissue typing or microbiology and virology with an interest in transplantation. Obviously, for those who stay in the field, they will need more in-depth information from the larger texts, but as a starter book, I have seen nothing better than this extremely good presentation. Each transplantation unit should have half a dozen or so available for those I have referred to above. (Peter J. Morris , Transplantation journal, 2012)
