“…an up-to-date, concise, clear, superbly illustrated (pictures, tables and diagrams), evidence-based work that covers all the various aspects of breast cancer (including breast reconstruction, male breast cancer etc.), as well as benign breast conditions.
[The authors]…are also commended for their balanced, nuanced account of breast cancer. They describe what ‘we think we know and understand’ as well as the challenges, uncertainties and unknowns of breast diseases. The book provides a thorough overview of adjuvant therapy (including the new aromatase inhibitor trails) and metastatic breast cancer, as well as excellent chapters on the systematic treatment of primary operable breast cancer (with reference to ongoing trials) and on clinical trials on the management of early breast cancer. Highly recommended for all non-specialists interested in this topic.” (Cancerworld, May-June 2006)
