"The chapters are well written...The Ovary should be of great value to established scholars in the field because it conveniently reviews the developments of the past decade and will quickly bring them up to date. This handsome volume can be highly recommended. Each chapter is amply referenced, making this book a great resource for anyone with a detailed interest in the ovary." -TRENDS IN ENDOCRINOLOGY AND METABOLISM, SEPTEMBER 2004 "...a comprehensive reference and value for the money...more for those who are curious to enquire into the scientific basis of clinical medicine." --David T. Baird, MB BChr, DSc, Professor Emeritus, University Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Director ofo Contraceptive Development Network, Edinburgh, UK for Journal of Family Planning and Reproductive Health Care, Vol. 31, No. 1 June 20052004
