    Outstanding New Book on Diseases of the Breast

    The Breast, by Kirby I. Bland and Edward M. Copeland III, promises to be a useful physician's resource. Just released in October 2003, the book is a new and thorough survey of breast diseases. It is a large hard-bound volume of over 1500 glossy pages and contains an abundance of color and black and white photographs. It promises to be a useful volume for diagnosis, as well as an invaluable teaching aid. Specialists should examine a copy. I doubt that they would be disappointed.
