From the reviews:

"As the title states, this book tells the story of endometriosis. It describes the findings, beliefs, and developments of many of the physicians who were pioneers in the field of endometriosis. ... It is written for historians and physicians, and it specifically targets those with an interest in the history of medicine. ... this is a well-referenced and excellently written historical account of an important medical topic we are still trying to fully comprehend." (Patricia T. Jimenez, Doody's Review Service, December, 2011)
