“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
