Review

Thrilling ... An eye-opening tour de force of scientific writing that reads like the best kind of adventure story -- Stephen Fry

One of the best accounts I have yet come across of the nature of biological science … Daniel Davis’s wonderful book recounts in exceptionally clear and sympathetic prose how research into the immune system has resulted in a health revolution -- Henry Marsh, New Statesman

Thoroughly absorbing ... Davis is a wonderful storyteller -- Bill Bryson

Terrific ... Davis relates the extraordinary modern developments in supercharging the body’s own immune system to fight disease, and one day maybe even eliminate cancer -- Steven Poole, *****Telegraph

Thrilling … Do not underestimate the importance of immunology. This field relates to you personally -- Adam Rutherford, Guardian

An inspirational book that not only reveals the secret joys of scientific discovery but is jam-packed full of revelations for non-scientists, Mail on Sunday

Forget AI, robotics, the internet of things. This is where the future feels strange and exciting: in the 'inner universe' of our immune system, and in the radically new therapies that are using it to conquer disease, Sunday Times

Highly readable, beautifully researched, backed up with notes, references and interviews by Davis himself, whose status as an immunology professor confers added credibility. He believes that we now know enough about the major components and interactions of the immune system to begin manipulating them to cure diseases such as cancer. We stand, he predicts, on the threshold of a medical revolution, New Scientist

A sweeping tour d’horizon … lucid and entertaining … Much as Siddhartha Mukherjee did in his book The Gene, Davis expertly weaves together human stories and scientific endeavour, The Times

New ways to treat cancer, diabetes, arthritis and other age-related diseases … Davis is a sure and engaging guide to these developments, Observer

Book Description

A leading expert introduces the revolutionary new science of the immune system with its break-through medical cures and discusses how stress, sleep and ageing affect our health.
