For each type of cancer, the author provides an invaluable annotated list of resources, including pamphlets, brochures, consumer health titles, reference sources, videos, CDROMs, Web sites, and more, that incorporates both basic and more advanced treatments. Additional resources such as cancer-patient organizations are also featured.

Review:

This book is everything it claims to be: a source of 'authoritative, patient-friendly print and electronic resources on cancer...Because of its well-researched additional information, attention to the reliability of information provided, and the sound advice to librarians throughout, this book is a must for health libraries and librarians. It would be invaluable in any public library...Staff and patients alike should make this their choice when seeking cancer information. --The Australian Library Journal, November 2008

Useful for all librarians who deal with patient and caregiver cancer information. Academic libraries and library schools would be wise to include this title in their collection...Public libraries will find it invaluable... --Journal of the Medical Library Association, April 2008

Superlative work...Information is clearly written and very detailed...While particularly useful for public libraries and their staff, this volume, with its exhaustive, authoritative coverage of cancer, is also appropriate for academic and medical library reference collections --Library Journal, Starred Review, August 2007
