From Doody Review Services

Reviewer: Stephen R. Lincoln, MD (University of Tennessee at Memphis College of Medicine)

Description: This is a collection of brief chapters on the evaluation and treatment of two principal elements of gynecological care.

Purpose: The purpose of this publication is to present a standard of care that could be made for all patients. Although this is a worthy objective, the book falls far short of the stated objective.

Audience: It is intended for general practitioners who care for women of reproductive age, according to the editors. In my judgement, it is appropriate only for medical students or residents.

Features: Although the title indicates that both infertility and conception will be discussed, fully 80 percent of the book is devoted to the subject of infertility. Many chapters have overlapping subjects. For example, hysterosalpingography is described in at least three separate chapters and yet none of the brief sections illustrates a normal or abnormal example.

Assessment: I believe this book is of little value to general practitioners or to subspecialists in the field. It attempts to cover all areas of reproduction, but each section provides only a cursory review of the subject matter. The reference sections vary widely in the depth and breadth of their content. This book could have been better organized to alleviate overlap of redundant material.
