“The current edition builds on the strength of the previous editions … .Overall, the book was well planned. Each chapter is a concise review of the recent literature, with detailed references. Where warranted, there are tables, black-and-white diagrams, and photographs that expand on the information provided in the text. This well-organized book will be useful to pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, and others with an interest in lung cancer.” (New England Journal of Medicine, December 2008)

“One of the most comprehensive and up-to-date treatises that I have surveyed … .I would recommend the book highly to anyone in allied disciplines.” (Doody's Book Reviews)
