Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Allen D. Seftel, MD (Case Western Reserve University)
Description: This is a comprehensive review of male and female reproductive medicine, written in a series of distinct chapters. Each chapter is written by an authority in the specific area of interest.
Purpose: The book is written to update the clinician and medical student about the latest developments in the field of male and female reproduction. This is a vitally important book and the objectives are extremely worthy.
Audience: It is intended for both clinicians and medical students. The individual authors are authorities in their fields.
Features: This book covers the expanse of reproductive medicine. The evaluation of male reproductive disorders entails 13 chapters, including the genetic basis of male infertility, hormonal issues, semen analysis, and male reproductive anatomy. There are 6 chapters on the management of male reproductive disorders, including medical therapy, vasectomy and reversal, varicocele, testis biopsy and ejaculatory disorders. There are 13 chapters on female reproductive disorders, 4 chapters on the management of female reproductive disorders; 12 chapters on assisted reproductive technology; 7 chapters on biopsychosocial issues and finally 2 chapters on legal/ ethical issues. Inasmuch as chapters are written by authorities, there tends to be some overlap in content amongst many of them. However, this minor shortcoming is in reality a major strength, for it results a variety of opinions on several different topics.
Assessment: This is a very timely and useful book. It is a very easy read and very worthwhile for reference material. It can be carried easily in the lab coat of a medical student, or become part of a permanent medical library. Both the experienced clinician and the medical student will derive benefit. In light of the ever-changing technology in this field, an updated version will be needed in the future.
