Management of Upper Gastrointestinal Cancer by Daly, Hennessy, and Reynolds is an excellent compilation of current information on the evaluation and treatment of gastroesophageal cancers. This book summarizes the recent advances in staging and multimodality treatment of upper gastrointestinal tract malignancies. The editors have divided the textbook into 4 main sections, focusing on staging, gastric cancer, esophageal cancer, and palliation. The editors have recruited internationally recognized experts to carefully delineate the nuances of the specific topics detailed. The inclusion of parallel chapters illustrating the Western or Japanese surgical treatment of gastric or esophageal cancer is particularly outstanding.
