Book Description Garland Science, 2013. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This is an impressively thoughtful, beautifully balanced analysis of where we stand today in the critical attempt to understand, and thereby defeat cancer as a scourge on humanity. Not only is it the perfect text for a serious course on cancer biology, it should be read by every cancer researcher - Bruce Alberts, University of California, San Francisco, USA The Biology of Canceris no doubt the definitive statement on its topic today. -Science, 11 August 2006: Vol. 313. no. 5788 There is no comparable text in cancer biology and no single book that is so current and informative. -Nature, November 30, 2006, Vol 444 'The Biology of Cancer, written by the distinguished American cancer biologist Robert Weinberg, is by far the most extensive of these new works and, as the product of a single author, is a remarkable achievement. The book is beautifully illustrated in full colour and well supplied with key review articles. It is extremely well written in language that should be accessible to the non-expert. Overall, this is a remarkable achievement that is by far the most comprehensive coverage of this field available.' - The Times Higher Education Supplement, February 23rd 2007 "The breadth of the topics covered, the clear writing style, the logical organization and the beautiful figures make The Biology of Cancer a classic text for any biologist interested in cancer.An additional strength of the book is the multimedia CD. Thus, The Biology of Cancer is not only a great read but also an outstanding learning tool."-Nature Cell Biology(November 2007) vol. 9, no. 11. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0815342195
