From the reviews:
"An easily accessible resource for the comprehensive care of patients suffering from malignancies of the spine. ... this book targets the resident/fellow (Oncology, Orthopedic, Neurological Surgery.) who is interested in spine cancer. It also serves as an updated reference for the practicing physician involved taking care of patients with cancer of the spine (Medical Oncologist, Neurologic Surgeon, Orthopedic Surgeon, Pain Anesthesiologist, Radiation therapist...). We recommend this book to be read by every healthcare professional involved in the care of patients with cancer in the spine." (Bernard R Bendok, Doody's Review Service, June, 2006)
"This text is ... well timed in its publication. ... The chapters are succinct and generally well referenced, giving this book appeal to a very broad range from the junior doctor embarking on an oncology or spinal surgical career to established clinicians ... . a useful, well-written, referenced and edited overview of the basic tenets of spinal oncology practice. Its size and layout make it very easy to read and it can be recommended to any health professional forming part of an oncology team." (Paul Thorpe, Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Vol. 89, May, 2007)
"Cancer of the Spine: Comprehensive Care presents a good overview of the various issues in dealing with patients with the wide spectrum of diseases encompassed in this textbook. This book ... would be of value for radiation oncologists for the comprehensive review of the management of these patients and for a better understanding of the relative indications and techniques of surgery, particularly for patients with metastatic spinal disease."

Readers will gain an appreciation of numerous treatment options and an understanding of how they relate to one another. ... Cancer in the Spine is a compact gem of succinct chapters that provide a multidisciplinary overview of this complex topic." (Bradford L. Currier, The New England Journal of Medicine, July, 2006)
