Reviewer: James Aiman, MD (Medical College of Wisconsin)

Description: A limited number of editors and contributors have produced a remarkable two-volume work that provides a current review of the evaluation and management of reproductive and endocrine disorders.

Purpose: The editors wish to expand the application of current knowledge to a global audience. To a large extent, the editors have achieved their objective, one that is certainly worthy.

Audience: Obstetrician/gynecologists and subspecialists will find this a useful resource. It is too specialized for primary care physicians. The editors are credible authorities on their subjects and have worked hard to produce comprehensive chapters.

Features: The book is extensively illustrated with charts, graphs, tables, hormone structures, biochemical pathways, as well as line art and black and white clinical photographs. The use of two-color green in many charts and tables adds visual interest and emphasis. The bibliographies for most chapters are extensive and current, a definite strength. The book is attractive and sturdy.

Assessment: That a limited number of editors can produce such a comprehensive work is an intellectual tour de force. However, the book might have been even better if the number of contributors was increased and an international scope added. The true strength of this book is the comprehensive compilation of common and obscure reproductive disorders in one source.
