Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lawrence C. Layman, MD (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This second edition is a thorough compendium of infertility.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive approach to the pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, and outcome of infertility. The editor purports this edition to be comprehensive and does attain this goal. Chapters on molecular biology, outcomes, adoption, support groups, and ethics clearly add to the more standard topics of infertility.
Audience: This book is meant for medical students, residents, fellows, and clinicians and appears appropriate for these groups. Perhaps the greatest benefit is for fellows and clinicians, since the level of detail probably exceeds that needed for medical students and residents. However, the interested student or resident should be able to comprehend this readable text from an editor with credibility.
Features: The book has an aesthetic appeal from its content and layout to its illustrations and diagrams. The judicious use of photographs for diagnostic procedures and surgery enhances the understanding of these sections. MRIs of brain could be better labeled, but they are of good quality. In general, references are current and appropriate, but the widespread use of algorithms seems somewhat rigid since aspects of diagnosis and treatment are controversial. Perhaps the greatest attribute is the completeness in addressing topics relating to infertility. I am not aware of other major texts that incorporate entire chapters to genetic techniques, outcomes research, ethics, religion, and various patient support groups under the same cover.
Assessment: This book covers the broadest range of topics on the subject, and most chapters deliver a succinct, focused approach. Although complete, it probably does not replace more standard reproductive endocrinology texts but complements them. This book provides a comprehensive reference book for students and residents and an excellent textbook for fellows and clinicians.
