Published Reviews

    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.
    Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, February 2005
