    Reviews & endorsements

    "...accurate and useful." Journal of Human Lactation

    "...extremely useful...an excellent new textbook that is great value for money and should become very popular." David A Ellwood, eMJA Bookroom

    "The editorial work shows a consistency of style and approach." Steven Sondheimer, University of Pennsylvania, New England Journal of Medicine

    "There are excellent sections dealing with behavioural and mental health issues, and with sexual health. The book is well laid out and crossreferenced, with a capacious but easily understood index, and all important information is set out in summary or table form as well as in the text. The illustrations do much to enhance the provision of information...the book does exactly what it set out to do: assist medical students to become informed, thoughtful, competent, and sympathetic in their care of women." Lancet

    "This text stands ou refreshingly in placing women as central to the discussion...an informative, modern, well- written addition to the obstetrics and gynaecology library." Jitendra Jadhav and Richard Kennedy, Center for Reproductive Medicine, University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust, Coventry, UK
