Abrams: Integrative Oncology
By Donald Abrams
2009 (1st ed), 624 pages, $40 list
People facing a new diagnosis of cancer are unsettled by their prognosis and treatment options, and they often seek to integrate complementary modalities into their conventional care plan, hoping to improve their chances of cure and decrease side effects. Many do so without informing their oncologist, for fear of alienating them or not convinced that their physician would be informed about complementary therapies. Integrative Oncology, the first volume in the Weil Integrative Medicine Library, provides a wealth of information for both practitioners and consumers on the emerging field of integrative oncology. Noted oncologist Donald Abrams and integrative medicine pioneer Andrew Weil and their international panel of experts present up-to-date and extensively referenced chapters on a wide spectrum of issues and challenges, bound in one comprehensive, reader-friendly text in a format featuring key points, sidebars, tables, and a two-color design for ease of use. It is destined to emerge as the definitive resource in this emerging field.

The TNM Supplement, 4th Edition, includes new, detailed definitions of anatomical sites, regional lymph nodes, and TNM categories. It answers questions that frequently arise during daily use of the TNM system. Importantly, the TNM Supplement expands on the minimum requirements for pathological classification of individal tumour sites and enumerates the recommended criteria for each. Published in association with the Union for International Cancer Control, it provides oncologists with complementary material related to TNM staging not covered in TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours, 7th Edition.
