The book is handy compared with other more detailed and voluminous textbooks on the market, and is accessible as an online version, like several other textbooks in obstetrics. The contents of the book, with its emphasis on clinical matters in a step-by-step approach, provide tips and advice to trainees and experienced obstetricians. I highly recommend the 12th edition of Munro Kerr's Operative Obstetrics.
