Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is an unusual but very helpful contribution to the field of pediatric oncology. … The audience is extremely broad, from pediatric professionals to even patients and their parents. The information is ideally suited to the needs of allied health professionals (nurses, pharmacists, chaplains, child life specialists, other pediatric professionals) wanting to read more about a case and, most importantly, would be invaluable to medical students needing the essential details of diagnosis and management in a short amount of time.” (Clarke Paul Anderson, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2014)
