This book is not what it purports to be. The reader, who at last expects to find a textbook offering an in-depth presentation of systemic chemotherapy in the treatment of malignant disease, will be disappointed. Emphasis in the text is clearly directed to infusion therapy, and the book might better have been titled, "Techniques of Infusion Cancer Chemotherapy." Of the 24 chapters, more than one half deal directly with various aspects of infusion treatment.

Furthermore, the organization of the text is confusing. For example, the book begins with two general chapters dealing with "Magnitude of the Cancer Problem" and "the General Considerations in Cancer Chemotherapy." The next two chapters deal with specific tumors, including those of the gallbladder, bile ducts, pancreas, and liver. The information presented here deals with clinical aspects of these disorders without mention of chemotherapy, except for description of a protocol study concerning protracted hepatic arterial infusion
