Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: George M. Eid, MD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: This nicely-written, easy-to-understand textbook is supported by a lot of colorful illustrations and graphics.
Purpose: The editor, a well-respected physician in this field, wants this to be a comprehensive textbookin which all aspects of breast cancer are covered. These objectives have been well met; this book serves as a single source to understand pathology, pathophysiology, and methods of treatment of breast cancer.
Audience: In this textbook, which is mainly written for medical students, residents, and fellows, the editor definitely addresses non-experts in the field of breast cancer in a format that is easy to understand and follow.
Features: From pathophysiology of breast cancer to laying down the main studies performed in the field of prevention and systemic treatment of breast cancer, this book is unique. The editor is able to get the information across through well-designed illustrations. Scanning through the tables, charts, and figures was occasionally enough to understand certain topics like breast imaging, benign breast diseases, and the principles of chemotherapy treatment. In addition, the editor sheds light on the main studies conducted to show the benefits of adjuvant therapy and the value of preventive treatment like Tamoxifen. The reader definitely finds a lot of emphasis on breast disease pathologies throughout the book. This atlas contains numerous photomicrographs representing almost all types of breast disease. It is noteworthy that this atlas is not a reference textbook but a good start for researching a topic in breast cancer and finding plenty of pertinent references. Despite the editor's efforts to present the information in a simple manner, he failed to provide the reader with a comprehensive and systematic clinical approach to the treatment of breast cancer.
Assessment: I enjoyed reading this book. I was fascinated by the graphics and the clarity with which the information was presented. Busy residents or medical students with their limited medical background will definitely find this atlas very helpful to understand the basics of breast cancer within a short period of time. Treatment of breast cancer is rapidly changing with a great deal of research being conducted to fight this terrifying and most prevalent cancer in women. This fact underscores the necessity for this second edition which includes all the hot topics of breast cancer, mainly prevention and genetics.

Taking into account the many developments in the field of breast cancer research since the first edition, this color atlas addresses breast oncology in broad terms, with contributions written by surgeons, oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, and other breast cancer experts from the US. Covers risk factors, epidemiology, and development of breast cancer; normal anatomy and development; prevention; breast imaging; surgery; breast biopsy processing; benign breast disorders; pathology; radiotherapy; the principles of systemic therapy; adjuvant systemic therapy; and locally advanced, locally recurrent, and metastatic breast cancer. Visuals play a significant role, with many color photographs, tables, charts, graphs, and figures. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
