"The Encyclopedia of Cancer is more than simply a reference book for cancer topics. It’s a compendium of the achievements of numerous scientists who’ve toiled in the world. The thousands of entries are a blend of brief but comprehensive introduction to the up-to-date information about various cancers and cancer-related topics. I like the extensive cross-referencing and it is very useful to the readers. I am honored to contribute to this timely and exciting endeavor.
