Book Reviews

From customer reviews of the previous edition:

‘This is the O&G textbook to get! It is divided into three sections: a concise description of the basic science, then separate sections on obstetrics and gynaecology. The level of detail is spot on. The pages are colourful and friendly with clinical scenarios, essential points, pictures and tables throughout. The text is broken up by lots of headings for ease of reading and each chapter ends with a brief summary of the essential points - perfect for revision. Information is easy to find via the index and all the main subjects are covered. Marvellous.’

‘This is a very clear book which covers a variety of topics about O&G. It is suitable for beginners, but you may find it talking too briefly as you progress. Overall, this is a good book to start with.’

 

 

‘A very attractive text for undergraduates in medicine, midwives and SHOs in obstetrics and gynaecology preparing for the DRCOG. The text is comprehensive but clear and concise...the graphics are outstanding. This is definitely a textbook to inspire students...and is aesthetically a very pleasing book to handle and read.’
