It is compact, approximately 170 × 238 × 8 mm, and could easily fit into a standard briefcase. The cover, printed in three colors on white gloss card, adds appropriate visual impact, especially the extensive use of orange-brown on blue. The principal aim of the textbook is to "provide practical advice on obstetric and gynaecological conditions" requiring surgical and medical management that may be encountered when providing humanitarian assistance in developing countries.
