This well-written book has an author index and a subject index. The illustrations are numerous and excellent. The various chapters are well organized and complete, each covering a particular disease site or type. Anatomy, clinicopathological aspects, methods of treatment, and prognosis are included. Methods and opinions other than those of the author are given in detail. A comprehensive list of references, which in themselves should prove of great value to the student, is found at the end of each chapter. The chapter on physics is brief and to the point. The omission of a rehash of the various books available devoted entirely to this subject is appreciated. This is a monumental piece of work. It should be part of the library of every physician who treats patients with cancer and for all who practice radiotherapy.
