This is a collection of 21 reviews published in 273 very expensive pages. Nine papers deal with ovarian tumors; however, they are not comprehensive. The remaining 12 reports are arranged under general headings: four in the "General" category, three under "Diagnosis," one "Chemotherapy Review," and a collection of three articles labeled "Specific Neoplasms." Most are brief and, as far as I could detect, no original material is published.
The longest review deals with some studies on serum copper (34 pp) and the shortest (4 pp) with cancer of unknown primaries. As with many books containing progress reports the articles vary greatly in quality and do not cover clinical cancer or clinical cancer research comprehensively. The book would be of little interest to workers in the field of clinical cancer, since much of the material has been widely published and reviewed elsewhere. It should be useful to readers with limited exposure
