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)

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)
