Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anthony Shanks, MD (Indiana University School of Medicine)
Description: Created by the publisher of the popular Tarascon Pharmacopoeia, this resource presents a lot of information about obstetrical and gynecological care in a book no larger than an iPhone.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a quick reference that users can carry in their pocket. It is an ambitious objective and the book crams nearly 500 pages worth of information into a small pocket-sized publication.
Audience: Residents and students would benefit the most from this book.
Features: This pocketbook contains an impressive amount of information, doled out as bullet points for easy access. There is good use of illustrations despite the size limitations. However, a major drawback is the size. Although I don't wear glasses, I still had a hard time reading the small font for sustained periods of time. Older readers will be unable to take advantage of it. The book is not designed for long sessions or even in-depth discussions. I can envision medical students and residents using it as a quick reference for talking points. For example, page 102 begins a pretty rapid fire discussion of hematological disorders in pregnancy. Page 176 quickly shows doses and routes for common medications. This is where the book excels - delivering quick and relevant information. The challenge will be locating that information.
Assessment: This is a good pocketbook for obstetrics/gynecology, but it lacks the clarity of larger books. The information is accurate and relevant, but difficult to read given the size. It represents a good start. An iPhone app may be in the future for this.
