Editorial Reviews

Review

"This reference for the medical and scientific community is also accessible to health care consumers, with a readable style, a clear layout, and a visual orientation, offering b&w images, photos, data charts, and summary tables on almost every page. The reference provides overview articles highlighting the latest research on biological as well as behavioral and societal determinants of the health of women throughout the life span."--Reference and Research Book News, August 2013 "This revised work updates the authoritative, exhaustively referenced, thoroughly documented…handbook published over ten years ago…this is an advanced textbook suitable for graduate medical and nursing students and health care professionals…Summing Up: Highly recommended."--CHOICE, August 2013 "Women and Health is a comprehensive reference that addresses health issues affecting women of all ages - from adolescence through maturity. It goes far beyond other books on this topic that concentrate only on reproductive health, and has a truly international perspective."--Doody.com, April 24, 2013

Reviews of the First Edition: "This book is an unparalleled and valuable compendium of data for anyone interested in women's health. The editors have done a superb job... the book is one of the most useful I have yet seen in the emerging field of women's health."-- THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE (2000) "The chapters are uniformly well researched and written, with extensive bibliographies and relevant Web sites. ...The book could serve well as the key text for a graduate or medical school course on women's health. It is also an excellent guide for planning and developing women's health curricula for medical students and residents in internal medicine, family medicine, and obstetrics and gynecology."--ANNALS OF INTERNAL MEDICINE (2001) "This first of its kind, easy-to-read, comprehensive text is an excellent contribution to the field of women's health and the epidemiologic literature."--DOODY'S PUBLISHING (2000) "Editors Goldman and Hatch offer an extremely well referenced, clearly organized, comprehensive, and manageable large handbook with research reviews that will also stimulate new ideas...A must purchase for all academic libraries."-- CHOICE (2000)
