E Albert Reece, Robert L Barbieri. Published by Thieme (Stuttgart, Germany), 2010. ISBN 9783131439512. Contains 576 pages. Price US$ $55.96This is a refreshing basic text which will appeal to many medical students commencing their studies in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. The publication covers a clear introduction to all of the relevant aspects of the specialty an undergraduate would be expected to encounter.The material content of several of the chapters is presented in interesting and sometimes novel formats. Many of the illustrations are vivid and the anatomical diagrams are clear and relevant. Some chapters break down issues into sections reviewing definitions, presentations, clinical course, treatment and so on for a number of conditions sequentially and this can make rather interrupted gleaning of information but for some will perhaps be a stimulating way of acquiring information.The incorporation of a section on Professional behaviour ethical and legal aspects of the specialty enriches the publication.This is a useful addition to the selection of publication available for Undergraduates and has the potential to stimulate interest in a broad range of Womens Health issues, covering basic knowledge and acting as a rich information source.Rosemary Reid Obstetrics & Gynaecology Christchurch Womens Hospital, Christchurch School of Medicine and Health Sciences University of Otago, Christchurch
