Over the last decade, as women’s health has been recognized as a distinct subspecialty, the field has grown exponentially. Literature on general care of women and gender differences in care has become more compartmentalized and subspecialized. These two books exemplify that phenomenon and the strengths and pitfalls of filling a new niche.

The target audience for Handbook of Women’s Health is health care professionals (family practitioners, internists, nurses, physician assistants) who provide primary care to women and, for Women’s Health in Mid-Life, family practitioners specifically.
