Dr. Bishop's volume is an excellent, compact discussion of the commonest problems in endocrine gynecology. It is well written and contains much information. One of the admirable features is the fact that this is not a formal discussion, but it reflects the author's own experiences with patients and the application of sound scientific principles in this regard. The information is, therefore, most useful for the physician. There is an appendix with valuable suggestions on fertility case records, temperature charts during the menstrual cycle, tables of potency of estrogen, and therapeutic schedules. A minor criticism is that the excellent chapter on steroid chemistry is too extensive for this condensed volume. The space might be better used with other data. Otherwise, this volume can be recommended to the general practitioner and the gynecologist who wants a good basis for the study and treatment of the endocrine aspects of gynecology.
