Editorial Reviews

Review

"Beautifully illustrated, Essential Reproduction is essential reading for medical, veterinary and biological science students, as well as students of physiology and trainees in obstetrics and gynaecology." (BMA Medical Book Competition - Programme and Award Winners, September 2008)

"This book is excellent for undergraduate studies as it has the perfect level of information. Beautiful diagrams complement clear text and digest this difficult subject down into easy to read sections." Medical Student, Oxford University

"It is a unique compilation of basic and clinical aspects of reproduction in an eloquently written text."
Doodys Reviews

Book Description

SUBJECT: Essential Reproduction provides an integrated and multidisciplinary approach to the study of reproduction for students taking courses in reproductive physiology in a wide range of subjects, from medicine and midwifery to veterinary medicine and bioscience. The book spans the disciplines of anatomy, physiology, behavioural science, endocrinology, immunology, genetics and clinical science. It draws out the general, fundamental principles of reproduction, and makes clear the differences between species in relevant areas - often in tabular form or as illustrations for clarity of presentation. There is a strong emphasis on clear structure and layout, and a good use of pedagogical features such as Key Points, Learning Points, and Further Reading. Reviews of previous editions "...this is an excellent book which can be recommended highly as a standard undergraduate text, but which will also prove a pleasurable read to many more senior endocrinologists." The Endocrinologist "I have rarely enjoyed reading a book so much and would strongly recommend it to all trainee obstetricians and gynaecologists and to all undergraduate medical and science students requiring a thorough introduction to human reproduction and to all requiring insight into the miracle of reproduction in man." South African Medical Journal "The authors teach reproduction at Cambridge University and this superbly produced book is written for medical, veterinary, and science students." British Medical Journal "All the major areas of reproduction are covered from sexual differentiation, regulation of gonadal function, action of steroids, implantation and establishment of placentation, maternal recognition and support of pregnancy, fetal physiology, events associated with parturition, lactation and maternal behaviour." British Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Budi Marjono on May 9, 2000
Format: Paperback
A short, biceps-friendly "textbook" on reproduction that covers most of the current knowledge in the field. Very well organized, and beautifully set up. Look at those colorful pictures and diagrams. I enjoy reading this book very much. But, when we were preparing for our endocrinology exam, we found something in table 3.4, p.39, on luteinizing hormone structure - it says that the beta-subunit of LH has two carobohydrate chains (instead of one?). Hopefully it's just a small typo. Well, nobody's perfect. I still give it nine out of ten.

I am currently using this book for a college course. The book is perfect for people first learning about mammal reproduction. The book is clearly organized into subjects. I recommend this book for people who want a foundation in reproduction.

Great book! Perfect for learning about reproduction, especially in the human. It goes into a good amount of detail about the hormones that help in this life-long process, but it is not over-bearing. You will not need to keep a medical dictionary at your side to read it!
