Reviews of the previous edition

 “A well written book with clear descriptions of the normal reproductive function of both sexes and their disorders... Perfect for those PBL sessions on reproductive biology.” Surgo, Glasgow University Medical Journal

 “...Human Reproduction at a Glance has the merit that it will remain useful and applicable for the whole duration of the medical course and onward into clinical practice.” GKT Gazette

“Exactly as the title says, you get brief but detailed information on hormone production and action on reproductive system development, and the associated disorders. It is brilliant for gaining a basic understanding of the reproductive system. With the aid of colourful pictures and reasonably simple explanations, this book makes it easy for you to understand the basic principles.” QMM Magazine, Birmingham University
