Interns and residents do not seem to have the same enthusiasm for building a professional library they had in years past. Perhaps this is because modern textbooks are too big, too expensive, and too quickly obsolete to be an attractive investment. Ready access to on-line databases may be another factor. The sight of a house officer searching the medical literature via computer before or during rounds is becoming commonplace.

What if, however, there were a reasonably comprehensive, very current textbook of medical oncology in a format so portable that it could be easily slipped in a handbag or coat pocket? If you doubt that this can be achieved without major sacrifices of content or detail, Medical Care of the Cancer Patient may change your mind. Appearing six years after the first edition, this succinct and pragmatic survey of cancer medicine retains all the excellent features of the original.
