Comprehensive books devoted to the primary immunodeficiency diseases are exceedingly few, but this is the second such text published in the past 3 years. The first, Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases: A Molecular and Genetic Approach (2nd ed, Oxford University Press, 2007), has been generally regarded by experts in the field as their “bible.” It is an extensive and detailed reference work—a multiauthored book of 726 pages specifying all aspects of these diseases but with an emphasis on genetic defects and research.
