Last week, Thyroid Cancer & Thyroid Nodules In 30 Minutes by Per-Olof Hasselgren, MD, PhD., received a silver Ben Franklin award for excellence in publishing from the Independent Book Publishers Association.
It was a crowded field. According to IBPA, there were approximately 1,800 submissions this year across 56 categories. Thyroid Cancer & Thyroid Nodules In 30 Minutes was one of only three winners in the health category. Kirkus Indies described the book as a “thorough, informative resource that never overwhelms” and noted the background of the author:
Hasselgren, a teacher of endocrine surgery with 45 years spent in the operating room, offers readers a wealth of information, including detailed walk-throughs of treatment procedures, including the total thyroidectomy, lobectomy, isthmusectomy, and lymph node surgery along with possible complications and necessary precautions. A detailed glossary (with a helpful expansion online) and index make the resource easy to revisit for specifics.
