I would like to thank the ESMO Publishing Working Group, in particular Professor Michele Ghielmini, for supporting the realisation of this book.
I would also like to thank Professor Hans-Helge Bartsch for his help in compiling the table of contents and identifying chapter authors.
Above all, I would like to thank all the authors and reviewers who enabled us to make this book a reality.
