From the reviews:
"This compendium is crammed with information, from the history of how the HPV virus was identified, to the present use of therapeutic HPV vaccines. ... it should be every PhD student's bible. ... policymakers may learn a lesson or two about the introduction of vaccination programmes - from the ethics associated with implementing them to the use of herd immunity in tackling lower-income populations. ... this book appears to be a must for anyone working in the HPV field." (C. Loughton, The Biologist, Vol. 60 (5), June-July, 2013)
"This hardbound edition is a multi-author book of thirteen chapters and claims to be a comprehensive summary of the available data in a multidisciplinary field. ... I found this interesting book to read ... . It takes into account the epidemiological and oncogenic aspects of the HPV genotypes, the complexity of the clinical spectrum, and the oncogenic potential and treatment-related difficulties associated with some types of HPV." (Stephen Mortlock, Immunology News, February, 2013)
