Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: E. Bradley Pewitt, MD, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book provides a concise discussion of the state of knowledge in urologic cancer subdivided by organ system. Additional sections on basic science principles, general principles of treatment modalities for cancer, nutrition, pain control, laparoscopy, and the randomized clinical trial make this a well-rounded text.
Purpose: The authors intend a comprehensive discussion of the recent advances in urologic oncology in a well-organized, easy-to-read format. Given the significant advances in urologic oncology in recent years, the book effectively provides a needed summary.
Audience: A large portion of general urologic practice involves caring for the cancer patient. This book serves as an excellent reference for the urology resident or the practicing urologist to review the current understanding of the disease process and the current surgical approaches.
Features: Inside a handsome cover, this book contains a comprehensive table of contents and a helpful index. High-quality figures clearly illustrate key aspects of surgical technique. The editors have assembled an impressive list of contributors, each a leader in the field, providing concisely written chapters with current and pertinent references.
Assessment: This is a high quality publication, concisely yet comprehensively reporting the state of the art in urologic oncology, authored by the leaders in the field. I strongly recommend this text as a valuable addition to the library or the personal reading material of the urology resident or practicing urologist.
