“The book has a very attractive, colorful, eye catching cover, comprised of very high resolution imaging studies. The book is printed on high quality paper in easily readable font. Dr. Hao has selected an outstanding group of authors, all experts in their respective fields. Fourteen of the eighteen chapters in the book have been written by authors from Asia which is completely understandable given the high incidence of oral cavity cancer in that region.” READ MORE…Eugene N. Myers, MD, FACS, FRCS Edin (Hon), Distinguished Professor and Emeritus Chair, Department of Otolaryngology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine

“The content of the book concentrated on the clinical challenge of oral cavity cancer from aetiology, evaluation and treatment options with discussion of results – this is a very medical book and avoids involvement of the non-medical members of the “multidisciplinary collaboration team” who look after the psychology, rehabilitation and terminal care of the many patients who demand an equal amount of time from the health service as does the diagnosis and therapeutic management.” READ MORE…Professor Patrick J Bradley, MBA FRCS

“The book, although authored by international experts, draws primarily from a vast experience with oral cancer in Taiwan and emphasizes a collaborative approach that members of the editor’s multimodality health care team have utilized to improve patient outcomes.” READ MORE…David W. Eisele, M.D., F.A.C.S., Andelot Professor and Director, Department of Otolaryngology, John Hopkins University School of Medicine
