Review quote

2018 BMA Awards: Highly Commended, Obstetrics and Gynecology

"This is a nice complement to other obstetric/gynecology books. It is not as in depth as other references, but the clinical context is much appreciated when looking at the (always excellent) illustrations. The table of contents is lengthy because of the number of topics the book covers, but overall this is an excellent resource."
