In the 29 chapters by 53 stellar contributors, these well-known and established surgical oncologists have accomplished their goal of developing a readable, comprehensive text involving the multidisciplinary approach to the successful management of solid tumors. They have incorporated practical concepts readily applicable in a rapidly changing field influenced by intensive research and continuing clinical trials. The contributors review controversial management strategies for a wide selection of tumors and offer treatment options. The diagrams and drawings are excellent, and the information is as relevant and timely as is possible in today's rapidly evolving knowledge base. This offering is an excellent book to use as a ready reference and should be available in departmental, hospital, and university libraries.
