Principles of Cancer Biology; New International Edition (PDF) is an engaging ebook focused on providing college students with a “big picture” view of cancer. Author Lewis Kleinsmith has written an instructional textbook focusing on key concepts for both general audience and medical students. For those instructors who wish to delve into particular aspects of cancer biology in greater depth; each chapter contains a list of suggested readings that expand the detail as needed.

The textbook also emphasizes the scientific evidence that underlies cancer biology; and teaches all students to think critically about this evidence – as there are constantly new “breakthroughs” and reports in this field. For college students who need the review; there are brief reviews of several topics related to DNA replication and repair; cell signaling; cell division; and inheritance patterns in chapters where these subjects are relevant. By including these reviews; the textbook is both engaging and accessible to a broad audience of readers who are studying cancer biology for the 1st time; as well as an interested general audience.
