From the reviews:

“This book is to provide readers with a review of the management of breast cancer in the older woman. … volume provides a detailed background to each topic with clear and helpful evidence based guidance. … book succeeds in providing evidence based guidance on virtually all aspects of breast cancer management. It represents good value for money … and is an asset to the library. It is suitable for the established clinician, trainee oncologist and to other members of the breast multidisciplinary team.” (Karin Baria, Oncology News, Vol. 8 (2), May/June, 2013)

“A slim but comprehensive review of the issues related to treating breast cancer in older patients. … it includes information about geriatrics as well as breast cancer biology and brings it all together in the treatment chapters. … Intended for practitioners who are taking care of older women with breast cancer, this book is aimed at not only cancer specialists, but also primary care physicians. … an excellent book that will provide guidance to a wide range of specialists who take care of these women.” (Carol Scott-Conner, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2011)

“Reed and Riccardo, have an established research and clinical interest in management of older women with breast cancer and have assembled a multidisciplinary panel of experts who contributed to various chapters in their field of expertise. … The book aims to provide readers with the best available evidence in this field. … a very well-written book and the editors and contributors have done justice to this topic. … a valuable resource for clinicians and other health-care professionals who deal with elderly patients with breast cancer.” (Mohammed Keshtgar, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 72 (4), April, 2011)
