''This is an excellent book. The contributors are widely recognised experts with particular expertise in their chapter subjects. What I particularly like about this book is the very strong "surgical flavour". There is a particularly good section on factors that predict for recurrence following breast conserving surgery, and factors that influence cosmetic outcome. All chapters are well written, balanced and up to date. In short I would recommend this book to any breast surgical trainee, or anyone wanting a refresher on the current evidence base to modern surgical breast cancer treatment''.
