  • “This book more than adequately covers the areas of cancer genesis, chemotherapy drugs, biologic and molecular therapies, stem-cell transplantation, chemotherapy safety issues, and antineoplastic drug interactions...This book is useful both as a first-time exposure to the information and as a source of review.”
