"The guide is quite specialized and is written with practicing oncologists, fellows, and oncology nurses in mind. ... this excellent book is rather unique because it is a practical handbook ... scholarly treatise on the subject. It is a pleasure to read and a worthwhile addition to the personal collection of every medical oncologist treating this disease." (Ravi Salgia, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2018)
