This is a magnum opus, assembled by three editors, of more than 600 pages with 35 chapters and 64 contributors. Each chapter concludes with an excellent summary and/or 10 key points to focus the messages in the text and with an extensive current bibliography. The publisher is to be commended for providing excellent typography with bold chapter subheadings, well-reproduced illustrative tables, graphs, figures, and a user-friendly index.

The editors note in the preface that "the purpose of this book is to review the physiological basis for the practice of gynecology and obstetrics and to bridge the gap between basic science and clinical practice."
