European Urology Today, Volume 17, Issue 1 -- "I was particularly taken by the chapters describing radiotherapy techniques, such as intensity modulated radiation therapy, and innovative surgical techniques. This textbook should be present in all medical oncological departments." European Urology Today Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), Volume 6, Issue 294 -- "Since its initial publication in 1982, Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, edited by DeVita, Hellman, and Rosenberg, has been a staple reference text in the medical oncologist's library. With each edition, the numbers of topics and contributors have increased, and this, the seventh edition, is the most inclusive. The practice of oncology has changed dramatically over the last 3 decades. We have progressed from the discovery that Hodgkin disease can be cured with chemotherapy to the knowledge that a variety of cancers can be cured or have improved survival. We have seen new chemotherapeutic agents developed in just the last several years become standard therapy. Most exciting, though, is the new era of targeted therapies: antiangiogenesis agents, enzyme inhibitors, and monoclonal antibodies, among others. Certainly, while there are other worthy texts, for many oncologists, Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology has been a primary reference since our training. The seventh edition continues to be a reliable and thorough source defining contemporary cancer care."-Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)
