    Reviews & endorsements

    "[An] excellent reference for those involved in pulmonary transplantation and provides great insight into the individual practices of the authors...I would recommend this book to all those involved in pulmonary transplantation as an excellent reference source and commend it highly." Stephen Clark, Cardiothoracic Centre, Freeman Hospital, British Transplantation Society

    "...a comprehensive, multiauthored book on lung transplantation that conveys the excitement and privilege of being involved in this heroic endeavor, and the anticipation of expected advances in lung transplantation science." Maria L. Padilla, Chest

    "[A] comprehensive overview that is accessible to the general respiratory physician." Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine

    "[A]t last a textbook of substance has been published that is solely devoted to lung transplantation and the various forms of end-stage lung disease for which it is indicated...an excellent resource book that has the potential to become the go to reference text for lung transplantation. It is a "must have" for all Transplant Pulmonologists, Coordinators and Surgeons and a "nice to have" for all other Pulmonologists, Transplant Psychiatrists and Social Workers." Journal of Transplant Coordination

    "Lung Transplantation succeeds as a state-of-the-art review of an evolving field. The book is relevant not only to transplantation specialists but to all clinicians who care for patients with advanced lung disease. Comprehensive in scope, this textbook is nonetheless sufficiently well written to motivate one to do so." New England Journal of Medicine
