"The unique feature of this book is its complete coverage of all essentials for treating peritoneal surface malignancies -- it is truly a "one stop shop"... The quality of this book is superb and the digital version provides an extra dimension. It is unique in the comprehensive coverage of this highly specific topic and cannot readily be compared to other books." - Carlos HF Chan, MD, PhD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics), 5 stars, Doody Enterprises
