Praise for the First Edition:
"...a comprehensive overview of the biology of the ovary that cannot be found elsewhere...This book will interest clinicians in various fields, from general obstetrician-gynecologists to subspecialists in gynecologic oncology and reproductive endocrinology. The cross-specialty coverage will give subspecialists ready access to material related to their practice that is not generally covered in their own highly specialized literature." --THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE, 1996
