Book Reviews
From a review of the previous edition:

"This book is an illustrative representation of common problems and normal development of pregnancy. It takes the reader through pregnancy in a systematic order...covers the length and breadth of obstetrics including the physiology of reproduction, fetal and maternal physiology and medical disorders. The book is ideally suited to medical students, student midwives and clinicians who need a quick aide memoir." -- Devender Roberts, Liverpool Women's Hospital, Hospital Medicine, February 2004
