VA in the Vanguard is more compilation (of conference proceedings) than book, although it might have been organized thematically to be more booklike. That said, the content of the articles is excellent and well worth publishing. The first-rate contributors are leading experts in smoking cessation. The commentaries provided are excellent summaries and reactive pieces to the main articles. Some policies have been updated since the presentations two years ago; for example, Medicare now reimburses for tobacco counseling in some cases.
