About the Author

Stephen Falk is a consultant clinical oncologist based in Bristol with sessional commitments to Yeovil. Major clinical interests are thoracic and gastro-intestinal malignancies. Interest in research was stimulated as a MRC Clinical Scientist in Norman Bleehens' unit in Cambridge where the MRC cancer trials unit was situated at the time. A MD related to lung cancer and scheduling of topoisomerase poisons with and without radiation is the basis of an on-going
interest in chemo-radiation interactions.

He is also a member of the NCRI upper GI studies committees. Increasing research management activity is reflected in his current role as co-clinical director of the UK comprehensive local research network western.


...this is a comprehensive book that I would recommend for patients, lay carers and professionals who wish to get information on lung cancer.
*Oncology News*

...a great resource for someone who is newly diagnosed with lung cancer and a great help for the practitioner.
*Doody's Notes*

I have reviewed quite a few books about lung cancer this is one of the best so far. Everything is explained really well for carers and it will help them to understand the mental strain on the patient. I like the honest content, the hope for the future and the explanation of the whole process, from symptoms, through diagnosis to treatment options. The introduction is excellent; it made me want to obtain more knowledge.
*Macmillan Cancer Support Cancer Voices*

This is a no-nonsense, practical, factual book on all aspects of lung cancer; it will be useful for anyone affected by cancer who is trying to understand what is happening and why. It is very clear and easy to understand; the authors use plain English, which would appeal to anyone with no medical knowledge.
*Macmillan Cancer Support Cancer Voices*

As a prospective undergraduate medical student with a strong interest in oncology, I found this resource incredibly informative. It has an abundance of information about the treatment of lung cancer, giving a patient (or anyone involved in their care) an accurate picture of what he/she can expect, thus slightly alleviating possible anxieties. It is also a very good quick reference resource for professionals.
