From the reviews:

?This is a wonderful review of the evidence-based use of plant medicine (materia medica) for various cancers. ? This should be interesting to scientific and medical professionals, such as oncologists, CAM doctors, cancer researchers, and medical care providers, as well as cancer patients. ? This book provides well-summarized information about the research and application of materia medica in this area. ? It also should be a valuable resource for cancer patients who are interested in the application of herbal medicine.? (Qi Chen, Doody?s Review Service, May, 2012)
