From the reviews:
"This is a compilation of current research on the preservation of fertility in young cancer patients facing gonadotoxic treatment regimens. … While they have targeted this book at helping to train and educate oncologists and reproductive specialists caring for young cancer patients, it may also be interesting and important to people in a variety of other fields including those in reproductive biology, biomedical ethics, sociology, and health policy. … an interesting and important book for anyone involved in the care of young cancer patients." (Emily S. Jungheim, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2008)
"This book is the first of its kind on the topic of oncofertility - a new discipline uniting reproductive biologists with oncologists to provide options for men, women, and children with a fertility-threatening cancer diagnosis. The book spans disciplines from cutting edge research to clinical care, bioethics, and medical guidelines. There are chapters for the specialists and chapters for patients who wish to read stories about those who have faced fertility-impacting diseases."
This is a terrific book and a must read!
