From the reviews:

"...represents a useful work and comparison tool for oncologists in general, and for medical oncologists in particular". Annals of Oncology

"Breast cancer is the first in the series of the M D Anderson Cancer Care Series and as stated in the preface … ’Each volume of this series will offer a detailed, comprehensive description of the M D Anderson approach to a particular type of cancer.’ … There are useful summaries of each chapter, headed key practice points and a suggested reading list at the end of each chapter. … It is a useful reference for the management of breast cancer … ." (J. Dewar, Cancer Forum, Vol. 26 (3), 2002)

"M D Anderson, a large Comprehensive Cancer Center, is dedicated to excellent patient care and research. … Its breast cancer care has been one of its most recognised programs. … It is appropriate for this series to begin with an overall comprehensive description of treatment protocols … . Each chapter provides details and suggestions for what is done at M D Anderson. … The book is a reasonable reference for the individual who treats breast cancer, particularly the guidelines, to match his/her approach." (Paul P. Carbone, Oncology, Vol. 64 (2), 2003)

"This book is an easy to read, yet extremely comprehensive resource of breast cancer management. … More than 125 photographs, line drawings and algorithms help to consolidate an already powerful text; they synthesize the combined clinical experience of the authors to give the reader a near complete approach to the management of breast cancer. This is a valuable and recommended text for those interested in, or those who are treating breast cancer." (Dave Segara, Today’s Life Science, Vol. 14 (6), 2002)

"All of the most important issues of breast cancer are dealt with … . The text has a clear and schematic conceptual layout … . The guidelines given offer useful advice for those who are about to undergo breast diagnostic procedures, but also represent a valid reference for the experienced specialists … . The integration of the work of various specialists … results in a text that is useful from a practical point of view, but also stimulating." (D. Amadori, Annals of Oncology, Vol. 13 (3), 2002)

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This update of a book in the MD Anderson Cancer Care Series includes information on prevention, early detection, surgical options, medical oncology, rehabilitation, and social challenges associated with breast cancer. … The book addresses practitioners involved in the management of breast cancer at every stage. The author adds that the book may be a resource for breast cancer patients … . This is useful as a quick reference for healthcare providers involved in the management of patients with breast cancer." (Heidi H Richardson, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2008)
