“The ebook is aimed primarily at interventional pulmonologists in practice and training. However; the ebook would be equally useful for general pulmonologists in training and practice; as well as a reference for other medical practitioners. The pulmonology ebook meets the needs of its intended audience. The contributors are well-known contemporary authorities on the different subjects; and most are extensively published and successful academicians. … very highly recommend this ebook to all pulmonologists who wield a bronchoscope.” Santosh Dhungana; Doody’s Book Reviews; March; 2018
