The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
"The book is nicely spilt into sections and then into chapters. It is easy to find what you are looking for, be it some background science and explanation regarding cancer therapies, or information on a more specific tumour type. The book begins with a discussion of the basic science and principles of oncology, including surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. This is explained nicely but simply, and is well illustrated throughout...In summary, this book covers the main tumours in good depth; it is a useful reference for the basic principles of vetrinary oncology and is certainly recommended for the practice bookshelf. The new edition provides new material that enhances its usefulness."
Veterinary Record, May 2013
"This book is the ideal companion for the vet wishing to understand disease and the best way to deal with it including communication to the client, complementary and alternative medicine and developmental therapeutics. A large part of the book remains focused on specific malignancies according their location."

"This book is amazing! I find it very hard to be critical, so I have stopped trying and am just putting pen to paper and writing what I think. If you have an interest in oncology and some spare time to concentrate whilst reading, buy this book. If you are a resident studying oncology, learn this book and you will pass your exams. The amazing thing about this book compared to any other veterinary text book I have ever read is that not only is it an authoritative and extremely contemporary resource, it also manages to convey a critical appraisal of all of the relevant veterinary literature without lapsing into the language of critique. I have tried to find fault with this book by checking for popular misrepresentations of the veterinary oncology literature. Where there is a valid controversy, all sides are represented without bias and without necessarily giving air to the notion that a controversy exists. I cannot find fault.
One of the really striking things about this book is that it is so up to date. There is a significant time lag between starting a project, identifying editors, instructing chapter authors, giving deadlines, chasing authors, reviewing deadlines, editing text, proofing and publishing. I always used to say that any textbook is two years out of date by the time it reaches the shelves. However, this book is considerably more contemporary than I expected. This must, in part, be due to the excellent choices of author for the various chapters included. These individuals are known to be leaders in their fields. It must also be reflection of the hard work of the editorial and production teams.
You know a reviewer is reaching desperation point when they discuss the pictures in only the third paragraph (unless it is a book that is based upon illustrations). The diagrams in the early chapters are clear and are appropriate. Cytology images are clear and useful. Photographs add to the overall quality of the book and break up the words striking a victory for the production team. Graphs are used to illustrate outcomes in a manner that could not be achieved without them.
I really love this book. If you are interested in veterinary oncology, have a flick through this book online or at a conference when you get the chance. I hope that you agree with me that this is the definitive oncology reference source for the early 21st century and that you feel compelled to buy it. Your patients will thank you for it."
