Review quote

"There are many books that claim to be a handbook and sometimes they are very slim volumes which are low on facts and information This book gets it just right and is a true handbook, easy to read, accessible and is not too large but packs in a lot of useful and relevant information [It] will help a number of clinicians in a large number of specialties-in essence anyone who needs to deal with a pregnant woman with a medical problem."
