"This is an excellent book. It presents common and rare problems in a systematic manner, and it is easy to read and understand. The editors have done an outstanding job of organizing the material, and the overall quality of the book is very good. It will definitely be a useful resource. The bonus features and updates on HPV, indications for pap smears and management of abnormal results, and the section on interviewing adolescents justify replacing the previous edition. Its unique features enhance its usefulness beyond comparable books."
- Doody's Book Review (August 2012)
Joan Griffith, M.D.(Ochsner Clinic Foundation) "Compared with previous editions, this is a greatly improved one, particularly due to the high number of coloured pictures and diagrams and also the fact that contents can now be accessed online with extra material being available electronically.""Overall, this is a good book to have as an introduction or reference in paediatric and adolescent gynaecology." - The Obstetrician & Gynaecologist (TOG) (2013) Lina Michala MRCOG Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology, University of Athens, Greece
