Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is a highly specialized book dealing with myeloma bone disease. . The book, authoritative as it is, is likely to be of interest to . physicians and scientists with a specific interest in myeloma. . No other book has dealt with the subject of myeloma bone disease in as much depth and, therefore, this one is unique." (Seema Singhal, Doody's Review Service, February, 2011)
