Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anthony Shanks, MD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This is the sixth edition of a book on all normal and abnormal problems encountered in pregnancy.
Purpose: It is intended as a definitive reference for obstetrics, from physiology to pathology.
Audience: The audience includes anyone in the field of obstetrics, although residents and physicians may derive the most benefit. This has been an essential book in obstetrics and the newest edition is no exception. The authors are leaders in the field.
Features: The book is easily broken down into smaller areas — physiology, prenatal care, intrapartum care, complicated pregnancies, coexisting diseases, and legal and ethical issues. This breakdown is very helpful, as readers can easily find a chapter with the desired information. A typical chapter provides a short index on the first page. Although many make like this quick survey of the chapter contents, I find it redundant and feel that it detracts from the overall aesthetic of the book. However, the images are excellent, including ones carried over from previous editions. Pictures such as those of diabetic neonates feel familiar without feeling old. An increased emphasis on evidence-based medicine is apparent. One excellent example is in the multiple gestation chapter, which deals head-on with controversial topics such as cerclage, progesterone, and cervical length screening and even recommends potential strategies. As many new residents will turn to this book as their primary learning source, it is important to teach the incorporation of study results into obstetrical practice. This is beautifully done here.
Assessment: This edition continues the book's wonderful tradition as a primary learning tool in obstetrics. It is exhaustive yet topical and provides trainees with excellent examples of incorporating evidence-based medicine. A wonderful resource.
