From The CriticsReviewer: Katherine J Hladky, MD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive introductory review of obstetrics and gynecology, designed to update the sixth edition from 1999.
Purpose: The authors intend this as a complete introductory text for trainees. There is need for such a text, and Dewhurst's nicely provides it.
Audience: The book is targeted at an audience in training, including students, residents, and midlevel providers.
Features: This book makes an effort to discuss the whole of obstetrics and gynecology, from fetal development to pregnancy to disorders in postmenopausal women. It provides brief explanations of most of the common illnesses and issues pertinent in obstetrics and gynecology practice. In a nice touch, some chapters provide a list of references for additional reading, and others have "key points" at the end of each section.
Assessment: This is a good, brief summary of obstetrics and gynecology. It can provide an overview for trainees or individuals outside the field. This edition has made an effort to keep the information current.
