Immunobiology previously by Charlie Janeway, who unfortunately has passed, so it is now authored by Kenneth Murphy. Many people just refer to it as "Janeway". These texts can be used both at an undergraduate and graduate level (I used ...

It's also not overly technical. I don't have much to say in the way of a review, but there's plenty on Amazon. It sort of seems exactly like the book you're looking for.
