From the reviews: "The book examines mechanisms of action and causes of both early and late radiotherapy consequences. ... Written for oncologists, particularly radiation oncologists, the book is appropriate for attendings, residents, and fellows in all oncology specialties. The authors/contributors are world leaders in oncology. ... This is a very well organized and written book, succinct yet strikingly informative. This series should be in every radiation oncologist's personal library and is full of insight for those in other oncology specialties." (James G. Douglas, Doody's Review Service, June, 2009) "There are 14 chapters written by well-known experts in the field: all of whom share the common target of striving to describe, how cancer patients can be cured by radiation therapy, chemotherapy and biological adjuvants. ... This is very important when one considers time and life spans of patient cohorts ... . Not only the radiotherapist but also the clinicians and all those who take care of cancer patients will appreciate ... this book." (Giampiero Beluffi, La Radiologia Media, Vol. 114, 2009) "Cured II.LENT Cancer Survivorship Research and Education is the second volume concerning late effects of radiation therapy in normal tissues. ... The text covers a larger range of issues, both physical and biological, written by notable experts in the field of radiobiology. ... provide invaluable information for training and practising oncologists. Thoroughly recommended reading material." (John Glaholm, RAD Magazine, November, 2010)
