Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Folkman ... assembled his final masterpiece in Angiogenesis, a book he coedited with William Figg. ... The text, written by well-known contributors to the field, is complemented by a large number of helpful schematics and photomicrographs. The references are extensive and encyclopedic. In summary, if I were to have a single textbook on this subject on my bookshelf, this book would have no competition. ... this will be the authoritative text on angiogenesis for many years to come." (Douglas W. Losordo, New England Journal of Medicine, Vol. 359 (23), December, 2008)
