Review:

A well-written and informative book covering all types of lymphoma. I would recommend this to anyone wishing to learn more about this complex disease. There is enough detail for health professionals who are new to the subject or who would like to expand their knowledge, while at the same time the majority of the book is written in a way that is also understandable for patients who wish to find out as much as possible about lymphoma. Full of interesting images, tables and diagrams to enhance the text, this is a comprehensive book covering all lymphoma types as well as epidemiology, current treatment modalities and supportive care. * Amazon review * "A very accessible summary of the key facts about lymphoma, presented in clear language with straight forward explanations." Leukemia Research Fund, Oct 2008.
