Because of Folkman's discovery and research, the possibilities of angiogenic therapy have broadened beyond cancer to many noncancerous diseases. Angiogenesis: An Integrative Approach from Science to Medicine is a comprehensive, concise summary of tumor angiogenesis. It is an up-to-date and authoritative reference for the angiogenesis field as it relates to oncology. This book represents the first collection in a volume of which Folkman is co-editor. Folkman has authored nearly 400 original papers and more than 100 book chapters.

From the reviews:
"Folkman ... assembled his final masterpiece in Angiogenesis, a book he coedited with William Figg. ... The text, written by well-known contributors to the field, is complemented by a large number of helpful schematics and photomicrographs. The references are extensive and encyclopedic. In summary, if I were to have a single textbook on this subject on my bookshelf, this book would have no competition. ... this will be the authoritative text on angiogenesis for many years to come." (Douglas W. Losordo, New England Journal of Medicine, Vol. 359 (23), December, 2008)
