Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: John C. Byrn, MD(University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: Part of the series, Early Diagnosis and Treatment of Cancer, this book covers the third most common cancer, that of the colon and rectum.
Purpose: The book is meant as introduction to the epidemiology, diagnosis, staging, and treatment of colorectal cancer.
Audience: Resident and practicing physicians are the intended audience. All disciplines involved in the treatment of patients with colorectal cancer are targeted, including radiologists, oncologists, and surgeons.
Features: The book serves as an introduction for practicing physicians to the comprehensive care of colorectal cancer patients. It covers all aspects of the disease process and treatment including epidemiology, risk factors, dietary considerations, chemotherapy, genetics, and surgical treatments. The "key points" at the beginning of each chapter provide structured goals for readers and enable quick progress through complex topics.
Assessment: This book fills a niche in the literature in terms of its attention to all aspects of the care of patients. As a surgeon, my readings are often focused on the surgical aspects of the disease. This book directs attention to all aspects of the disease process and treatment.
