Format: Hardcover
Without a doubt, this book is the leader
in cancer literature.It has over 3,000 pages
and weighs over 18 pounds in two volumes. It is
the publishers, Wolters Kluewer/Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, who deserve the
credit for creating this massive work. There
are 421 contributing authors, but the publishers
organized this enormous amount of material by
the scientific leaders in the oncology
community. The publishers have included cartoons that visually explain some of the intricate
mechanisms of cancer development and treatment
that help the reader understand how cancer
develops and the treatments involved. The reader
will understand the hidden role of the
publishers when difficult and obscure
treatments and strategies are clearly explained.
If the reader follows the cancer literature, as
I do in cancer journals, the reader will appreciate the editiors' role in presenting
clear, understandable reading. The reader should be under no illusions that the 421 authors
are gifted writers as they are physicians.
There are 78 chapters containing all the current
treatments and strategies for the treatment of
cancer but obviously the latest treatments and
drugs could not be included. The 9th edition,
currently released in 2011, will undoubtedly,
will correct this situation. Whether it is the
molecular basis of cancer, or the principles of
oncology, or the practice of oncology, or the
newer approaches in cancer treatment, this is
the source book all health professionals who need, and read more than superfical journal literature. This is
the ultimate, indispensable source for those who
study cancer.

Look, this is the reference book for cancer. They get the best thought leaders, write the best summaries, and have the most comprehensive guide out there - plus free access via web (very handy if you don't want to lug a 30 lb. book with you on rounds!). Pick up a new one every 2-3 years so ASCO, ASH and SABCS Updates are covered.
