Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Blood and urine tests, amniocentesis and sonogram techniques are used to detect fetal abnormalities, which may then be treated with surgery or medication. Successful and unsuccessful cases are discussed by New York Times medical reporter Kolata, as is the controversial practice of ``selective reduction'' in multiple pregnancies. PW called this an ``engrossing, edifying account.'' (Nov.)
