From Doody Review Services

Reviewer: Albert J. Peters, DO (Northwestern University Medical School)

Description: The book provides good clinical information, based on scientific studies, in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. It is logically organized, beginning with embryology, progressing through pregnancy, and then working into reproductive disorders.

Purpose: The purpose is to provide the practicing obstetrician/gynecologist with a sound basis for the clinical management of patients through well-documented reviews of the reproductive endocrinology and infertility literature. I believe the book does meet the authors' objectives; clinical information is well supported by appropriate scientific and clinical studies.

Audience: The book is appropriate for the resident or practicing obstetrician/gynecologist. Both authors are well known and respected in the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility. The authors and the contributors have demonstrated research and clinical skills that are pertinent to this publication.

Features: The book is appropriately illustrated. Of particular clarity and enjoyment are the schematic diagrams. Perhaps some color prints would add something to the overall appearance. The references, although pertinent and often classical, are dated in some chapters. The index was easy to use and inclusive. The table of contents is somewhat difficult to use as a quick reference; perhaps the titles should appear in bold print. The overall appearance of the book is satisfactory.

Assessment: The book is organized in a particularly logical manner, thus giving the reader a perspective of the field beforelearning the detailed information. It will be a good reference source as well as a primary text for medical libraries and residency education programs.
