"This book provides a comprehensive overview of the care of women with breast or gynaecological cancers . . . This book would be a useful resource for hospital and university libraries, and should be avaialable on gynaecological wards. It will benefit nursing and medical students as well as qualified nurses." (Cancer Nursing Practice, 1 September 2011)
