Reviews

From the reviews:

“The editors have successfully compiled a timely review of the management of lung cancer, focusing on the issues that pertain specifically to older patients. … This anthology is designed for oncologists … as well as pulmonologists whose practice includes older patients with lung cancer. … This is an excellent resource for any clinician who cares for elderly patients with lung cancer, although the information is appropriate for clinicians caring for cancer patients of all sorts. The authors’ well-written contributions are up to date and instructive.” (Melissa L. Johnson, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2013)
