In the UK, undergraduate-level medicine has traditionally been taught in a master-apprentice style, with information about diagnosis and treatment being passed on in a didactic way and with slow updating. This has led to many books being simplistic and relatively brief. Medicine is not so straightforward and learning about the aetiology, diagnosis and management of conditions demands a much greater flexibility of thought than is apparent in most of the current textbooks.A textbook that appeals to students with enquiring scientific minds is required. This invaluable volume covers the main topics of obstetrics and gynaecology that an undergraduate needs to learn, but with more background scientific information. This contributes to a better understanding of why the disorder occurs and to a logical grasp of how the treatment works. Therefore, the book can be used in the early stages of preparation for the MRCOG examination. The authors, who are experts in their fields, have written clearly, keeping the student in mind. They have been constantly treating patients and are involved in undergraduate education.
