Digestive and Liver Disease, 2007

From a review of the first edition:
"More knowledge of molecular biology, better definition of risk groups, better screening, further development of risk- oriented combination therapy, and more meticulous surgery may yield much higher cure rates for colon and rectal cancer. Scholefield's book is one of the best starting points for a journey through the world of established, new, and evolving treatments for these diseases."
New England Journal of Medicine, September 2000

"Robert W Beart, Jr., states in the foreword that this book provides an "up-to-date record of the rapidly evolving alternatives" in chapters which span the gamut from prevention through palliation. It is written for subspecialist physicians, nurses, and other members of the medical team. The emphasis throughout is providing this team with concrete, useful information. Although the authors are predominantly from the U.K., European and American issues are identified throughout." (Carol Scott-Conner, MD, PhD, MBA, @Doody's Review Service)
