Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This scholarly book describes new advances in breast cancer genetics, treatment, and prevention strategies. … Eighteen contributors, all physicians, lent their expertise to this book. It is recommended for those in multiple specialties, including medical and surgical oncologists, but it is also an excellent resource for general practitioners waiting a focused update on breast cancer. … It is useful for all practitioners interested in a concise overview of advances in breast cancer prevention and treatment." (Heidi H. Richardson, Doody's Review Service, February, 2008)
