“Now in its eighth edition, this remarkable, concise, and portable manual is packed with essential information that seamlessly integrates basic science and clinical sciences with technological advances as they relate to the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and management of a variety of cancer types.
The manual is well organized into four major sections: general aspects, solid tumors, hematological malignancies, and complications. Each section contains several chapters written by experts actively engaged in clinical research. While Sections 2 and 3 cover the most common cancers and contain the expected information, it is Section 4 that is quite remarkable, providing useful information on complications ranging from metabolic complications to those from stem cell transplantation, which is uncommon in standard works in this area.
A unique selling point of this book is the outline format with bold headings and subheadings that makes it easy to access pertinent information and makes up for the (almost) total lack of figures and illustrations.
Amazingly, although this manual is almost 900 pages, it is quite handy and portable. Overall, it is an indispensable resource that should be a part of every oncology library.”
