Adolescents and young adults aged 15 to 30 years have a statistically low rate of cancer (1 of every 168 US residents). This comprehensive book claims to be the first devoted exclusively to the total cancer picture of this targeted age set. It follows an earlier monograph and extensive review article.1 The editors and authors are all well-known researchers in US and western European pediatric hematology-oncology.
