Acclaimed by the worldwide medical community as the standard-setting oncology reference, Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology is now in its Fifth Edition. This new edition has been extensively reorganized to integrate the groundbreaking advances of molecular biology into the broad range of oncologic practice, including cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.A new introductory section -- Essentials of Modern Oncologic Science -- provides a base of information on molecular biology, signal transduction, and immunology. The Principles of Oncology section includes new chapters on the cell cycle and on principles of cancer management related to molecular pathology, cancer genetics, and biologic therapy. The Practice of Oncology section features entirely new chapters on the molecular biology of each organ site, as well as up-to-date multimodality treatment guidelines for each stage of disease. Also included are timely discussions of supportive and palliative care, health care reform, regulatory issues, drug development, gene therapy, and cancer vaccines.

Sort of annoyed with myself for buying this. I obviously didn't read carefully enough. I thought I was ordering a book and it fact it's CD, quite old CDs in a format that my computer won't read. Oh well! Probably a great resource in 1993 or whenever if you had the right computer.

This is one of the few textbooks available about cancer biology.Very well written and concise it will give you an overview of this changing field.
Later you would be able to read a more detailed textbook like Weinberg's.In summary I strongly recommend this book.

Devita is recognized as the established text-book on medical oncology.

Its strengths are 1. the excellent introduction to the science of oncology 2. the comprehensive reviews of each tumour type (inevitably dated as is almost every text-book) 3. a sufficient coverage of all modalities of treatment to allow the medical oncologist to appreciate the contribution of surgery, and radiation therapy 4. a number of useful discussions of common clinical scenarios.

Its weakness is twofold: 1. if you are looking for a clear recommendation or approach to a problem you will often be better served elsewhere 2. the writing is hard going with a strong tendency to turgid US academic prose.

So who should read it? Any medical oncology fellow should read this or one of the similar books cover to cover. For consultants it is a useful starting point to review a condition not often seen, or provide a background to the field. In contrast to another reviewer I cannot believe a lay-person without a very strong health science background will be able to wade through it.
Although the Devita text is a good resource, it has important drawbacks. In every edition, including the latest one, too much information has been out of date even at the first day of publication. Several other major oncology texts somehow manage to avoid this problem much better. Also, since the text comes out every two years, information in the current edition is already at least 3 years old or older. Beyond this, the index is detailed but it still is hard to find specific information, i.e., the book is clumsily organized. Finally, the CD version has the worst search program that I have ever used. You can enter information with any degree of specificity and the search will retrieve (at best) a list of chapters and major chapter sections in which to look. You then have to read through miles of text to find the information that you wanted. Searchability is one of the main reasons for buying a CD and I consider the Devita CD virtually worthless.
