Review:

From the reviews of the second edition:

“This important and pace-keeping text book comes to life under the wise editorial guidance of Prof. Jeremić who ... coordinates a large cohort of well-known international experts in the field; it is intended to offer the reader and most of all, those directly involved in fighting lung cancer with the above reported weapons, important theoretical, diagnostic, efficient discussion tools with the hope that it might set the stage for further improvements, and help consolidate researchers’ efforts.” (Giampiero Beluffi, La radiologia medica, Vol. 118, 2013)

“This is a very comprehensive textbook that tackles an important topic that is increasingly getting more popular and complex. It starts with the basic science regarding lung cancer and the role of angiogenesis and how to understand the role of the current receptor status. ... The textbook goes on to explain the role of surgery in lung cancer and in a comprehensive way covers radiotherapy treatment. ... this is a valuable textbook which is very important for any radiation oncologist to have in the library.” (Hany Eldeeb, RAD Magazine, August, 2012)
