From the reviews of the third edition:

“This most timely book outlines the debate about cancer prevention. … The audience is primarily those involved in thinking about, planning for, and implementing prevention strategies who wish to have a comprehensive book that explores current theories and proven models. … This book continues its tradition as a comprehensive summary of the benefits of and strategies for cancer prevention. It is an important addition to any library serving those involved in policy development and clinical prevention.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2014)
