Editorial Reviews

Stephen R. Lincoln
This is a complete and comprehensive review of all aspects of the oocyte and embryo donation process. The purpose is to provide detailed coverage of the donation process for patients and physicians alike. The editor has compiled a text that more than meets this purpose. Patients will benefit from this text, but all subspecialists in the area of infertility would find the book a tremendous resource for their practice. The editor is a world-renowned expert in this field He has assembled an impressive collection of leading experts around the world to give an up-to-date, thorough explanation of the donation process. Not only are medical issues covered, but psychological, ethical, legal, and even religious concerns are fully discussed as well. I have already used information from this book in formal presentations on the subject as well as in private patient-physician consultations in my practice. It is an excellent resource for physicians in the field as well as any couples considering third-party reproductive technologies.
