Living with Germs

In Sickness and in Health

John Playfair

  • The clearest and most accessible book on immunology on the market
  • An up-to-date, authoritative account of the workings of the immune system and the way it copes with pathogens, the microbes that make us ill
  • Timely and topical: diseases caused by 'germs', from HIV to SARS, are rarely out of the news
  • Abundant anecdotal and autobiographical material brings the story to life
  • An highly regarded and influential author: John Playfair was Chairman of the Immunology Department at University College Hospital, where he established the immunology course, and he has written widely on the subjects of infection and immunity
