This book is the result of the effort, work and experience of many people. I would like to thank the members of the ESMO Publishing Working Group and also the ESMO Educational Steering Committee for their support and unstinting assistance.
We must recognise and thank the authors for the many hours they have devoted to this work – without them, this update would not have been possible.
I would also like to thank Aude Galli and Claire Bramley of ESMO for their collaboration, patience and interest in the success of this book.
Above all, I would like to thank you, dear reader, for your trust in us.
