Cancer Medicine: Drug Discovery and Development, is an essential text in the science which bridges the gap between laboratory and bedside medicine. The typical cancer medicine text book discusses pathology and treatment of neoplasms.  This book takes an entirely different approach, and while it briefly describes certain neoplasms, it focuses on the discovery and development of anticancer agents.  It details the procurement of plant materials from various remote parts of the earth, such as Africa, their extraction processes, application into animal cancer models and further development in human clinical trials. Novel research methods are discussed, and while this book does not assert itself as a terminal text, it challenges the young and older scientists to a path of medicinal creativity, especailly in its area of focus (cancer), where further research and discoveries are desperately needed. Furthermore, it serves as a guide of further inquiry into the discovery and development of pharmaceutical agents for challenging parasitic infections, such as malaria, and viral ailments such as HIV-AIDS.
