Editorial Reviews

Louisa C. Coutts-van Dijk
This new handbook on women's healthcare is written from a primary care perspective. It addresses gynecologic disorders, family planning, general medicine, prevention, and psychosocial issues. The last section is devoted to gynecologic procedures and tests. The purpose is to provide concise and practical information on the broad range of topics included in women's healthcare. It aims at meeting a demand for books written by physicians with years of clinical experience in a primary care setting. Written mainly by family physicians, this book will prove useful to primary care physicians, residents, and nurse practitioners. With 740 pages, this textbook is rather heavy to be called a handbook. Chapters are presented in outline format, which enhances clarity and brevity. This makes it well suited as a quick reference guide for the busy primary care clinician. Illustrations are few and far between, and more would greatly improve the impact of the sections on contraception and procedures. This handbook is packed with pertinent and practical information on all aspects of women's healthcare. For a book on such a wide subject, the authors must be applauded at being comprehensive while at the same time achieving appropriate boundaries. However, certain areas are clearly underrepresented. The many family physicians involved in prenatal care, childbirth, and postnatal care will certainly be disappointed to find that only 1 of 125 chapters deals with pregnancy issues. The table of contents may leave some readers baffled because of its organization (for instance, since when is gonorrhea not a sexually transmitted disease?). Overall, however, this is an excellent and very practical women'shealthcare book. With its focus on prevention and inclusion of psychosocial issues, it is well suited for primary care clinicians.
