review:  “The breadth and depth of the coverage of current TGF-β research is the most compelling feature of this book...[I]t is my recommendation that every principal investigator studying TGF-β should have a copy of this book...[T]he process of ‘getting up to speed’ becomes far less arduous.”

review:  “The book includes numerous figures and tables, which make each chapter accessible and pleasant to read. This volume will be of interest both for basic scientists concerned with topics such as transcriptional control of TFG-β signaling, as well as for translational scientists and clinicians focused on agents used to target the TGF-β signaling pathway...In summary, this book can be considered as a true TGF-β family encyclopedia.”
      —The Quarterly Review of Biology

review:  “I found The TGF-β Family a great book. Tables and illustrations will surely prove useful in guiding the reader through complex problems and the book can be certainly recommended for teaching purposes. The clarity and comprehensiveness of the monograph, the eminence of the editors and authors, and the extensive bibliography at the end of each chapter make this book a ‘must-have’ reference for established investigators and clinicians and for newcomers attracted to TGF-β from various fields.”
