Cancer of the Lung: From Molecular Biology to Treatment Guidelines makes a good-faith effort to cover a huge subject, encompassing basic science, epidemiology, and clinical medicine. It addresses all or most of the expected areas: epidemiology, pathology, molecular biology, diagnostic techniques, staging, and treatment modalities. Many of these areas are comprehensively covered; for other areas, no more than general textbook discussions on pulmonary medicine or oncology are offered. Some are not covered at all. For instance, mesothelioma, a malignancy of interest to many potential readers of this book, was not included. Each chapter is comprehensively referenced, and this alone is a valuable feature.
