I am writing this as a PhD student in immunology studying lymphocyte anergy.

On page 13, the author gives an overview on how antigens are presented to T cells and B cells. In the first few sentences, he says that specialized cells present antigens to T cells. In the next few, he addresses how antigens are presented to B cells like this: "Less is known about cells that may capture antigens for display to B lymphocytes. B lymphocytes may directly recognize the antigens of microbes (either released or on the surface of the microbes), or macrophages lining the lymphatic channels may capture antigens and display them to B cells." The use of the word 'may' makes it seem like it is not understood how antigens are presented to B cells, and they may do this or they may do that, we don't know. But you later find out that they do both (at least as far as I know), and the author probably should have used the word 'can,' as in they can do this or they can do that, but we don't know a lot about it.
I'd suggest reading a little bit of the book in the preview to see if you like it. If you do like the writing style, the book is great. Everything is laid out well and its all good information with great explanations without any fluff.
Edit: I've read more of the book now, and I like it a lot more. I don't run into problems with his writing style anymore. I don't know if it changed throughout the first couple chapter, or I got used to it, or it was just me in the first chapter. One thing I have noticed is that the author seems to do a really good job about introducing material. Every time I start reading about a new idea, i have seen it before earlier in the book. He does this in a really seamless and fluid manner, and it is really helpful. It is really easy to understand new topics as he talks about them. I changed my rating from 3/5 to 5/5.
The book is organized from simple concepts to more advanced ones, with each chapter building upon the previous. Sometimes it can get a little confusing, because your thinking "Wait...it's chapter 8 and this stuff we talked about in chapter 3?" Then you get to the end of the chapter and you realize that they are going way more in depth than before, and adding in new theories and information.
There are a few mistakes, but our professor found most of them. The visuals are really intense, even down to what color things are specifies individual things (except for a few mistakes, as mentioned).
I'd recommend making sure you get a new copy so you get the online version also. It's super handy to be able to search for terms and find them through all the chapters really quick.
The only reason I give it only 4 stars is that it is not as easy to read as the Kuby or Janeway. The Abbas tends to mention complex subjects that have not been explained, and then throws in a short definition of these. This makes it more difficult to read, but it is also more concise than the Kuby and Janeway. I don't think this is a problem, but I can see that my students might find that difficult.
