"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." âAnne W. Moulton, MD, Rhode Island Hospital, ANNALS OF INTERNAL MEDICINE (March 2001) "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." âMarianne J. Legato, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, in THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE (August 2000) "Every so often a book is published which simply
mustbe on your bookshelf. The new edition of Women and Health is just such a book. ...it is refreshing to see such an excellent integration of medicine, social science and basic research. ...a monumental achievement and is testimony to how far we have come in both our understanding and our sensitivities. It is wonderful to have so much information presented so authoritatively and to have the controversies and perspectives that are inherent to the field covered so eloquently. Certainly, this is a highly recommended text." âJeanne Mager Stellman, Columbia University, in WOMEN & HEALTH (2000) "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." âDOODY'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)
