International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Volume 63, Issue 2 -- "These are exciting times for the specialty of radiation oncology, which is now ushering in the emerging field of SBRT. This book is a timely and welcome addition to the radiation oncology literature because it is the first to address the current state of the art of SBRT. The book features an eclectic list of contributing authors, from a large number of academic centers, and over 100 high-quality illustrations that effectively supplement the text throughout the book. This book is a good value and deserves serious consideration for inclusion in the library of anyone wanting to be at the cutting edge of SBRT."
