Surgical Oncology -- "Principles and Practice is widely accepted to have a pedigree as one of the most comprehensive books in this field. It has been thoroughly revised for its fifth edition. With specific regard to the surgeon there is a very good chapter on the princples of surgical therapy written by some of the big names of North American Paediatric Surgery. This reaffirms the importance of the 'Paediatric Surgical Oncologist', and nicely covers the principles of surgery. There is an excellent discussion on the risks of anaesthesia for anterior mediastinal masses with a clear algorithm for pre-operative investigations to assess the risk and provide a guide to the safest method of biopsy. The main appeal of this book, however, is the fact that the surgeon can easily find detailed information on such things as tumour markers, diagnosis, In summary the book covers all aspects of children's cancer in detail. This book is an excellent reference text and would form the cornerstone of knowledge for a busy paediatric surgical oncologist."
