Editorial Reviews

JAMA
...the obstetric book to read for the boards. Review of previous edition, 1997
Dwight P. Cruikshank
This 19th edition of what has become a ""classic"" is a thorough textbook of the entire spectrum of the specialty of obstetrics. The 18th edition was published in 1989. This is clearly meant to be the definitive textbook in the field. The authors have greatly expanded upon the previous edition, adding 20 chapters and approximately 400 pages. This book should be read in its entirety by all practitioners and residents in obstetrics/gynecology and family practice. A great deal of the book is also appropriate for medical students and nurse midwives. The quantity and quality of illustrations are appropriate. There are abundant current and pertinent references. The table of contents and the index are both quite good. The authors have done a superb job of merging a traditional textbook of obstetrics with a textbook of maternal/fetal medicine. Whereas the previous editions had one chapter regarding medical and surgical complications of pregnancy, the new edition has 13, diseases of each organ system being treated in individual chapters. New chapters have been added on genetics, prenatal diagnosis, ultrasound, and drugs prescribed during pregnancy. Previous editions of this textbook have been criticized for presenting only management schemes which are used at the authors' institution. This edition presents a somewhat more balanced treatment of those areas of obstetrics where management remains controversial. In general, all of the chapters in this book are superb. The sections on ovarian function, ovulation, and menstruation are longer than they need to be in a textbook of obstetrics (as opposed to gynecology), but they are well written. The only weakness is the chapter on forceps delivery, whichcontains too few pictures and details to be very useful. In summary, this is one of the ""gold standard"" textbooks of the discipline.
