This book is well written in a clear and concise manner and the text is liberally supplemented with excellent illustrations both photographic and diagrammatic. The material covers completely the fields of obstetrics and gynecology, and the author makes every effort to make the book practical. The chapters on anatomy bring this out in an effective manner. In this part of the volume each of the peculiarities of the anatomic make-up is described in terms of importance to the nurse in caring for the patient.

The book is divided into six parts: anatomy, physiology, pregnancy, parturition, diseases of the reproductive tract and gynecologic nursing.
