The cases are clinically relevant and interesting, resulting in a textbook which is somewhat of a page turner....I can recommend this book to medical students and young medical doctors who wish to get an overview of evidence-based management of common conditions in obstetrics and gynaecology. * Mette Calundann Noer Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Book Review *
