From the reviews:
"This book covers the basic science and translational and clinical aspects of bone cancer and bone tumors. ... The target audience is clearly an elite group of clinicians and scientists who are focused on understanding future innovations in the treatment of bone related cancers. ... a great addition to the lab that is studying bone cancers or for the clinician who is actively treating patients with bone cancer. ... the average orthopedist will find in deeper scientifically than is necessary for a general orthopedic practice." (Mark R. Hutchinson, Doody's Review Service, December, 2009)
"This book is the fifth volume in the series Topics in Bone Biology. It presents up to date knowledge in the mechanisms of cancer in bone. ... The book is well written, extensively referenced and comprehensive. It has been well edited, and chapters are of a consistent layout. ... The book will make a good addition to a departmental library in any unit managing skeletal cancer." (Robert U. Ashford, European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology, Vol. 21, 2011)
