There is a tendency for new editions of clinical cancer texts to be produced about every 5 years or so. No doubt this is owing to rapid changes in diagnosis and treatment. One cannot help wondering, however, if there isn't something akin to planned obsolescence in these efforts. Such books have become hefty tomes, and I have to believe they are less read than referenced. Too much of their material seems transient, and what was an appropriate diagnostic workup at a certain time may be out-of-date by the time the text is published.
