Summary

Assisted human reproduction continues its worldwide spread as increasing numbers of patients are treated annually, and more clinicians and scientists enter the field each year. Demand for new knowledge remains insatiable whether on the web, in conferences or textbooks. Demand comes from so many quarters, from medical and scientific professionals, teachers, nurses, counsellors, patients and students, each needing information for their own particular ends. Comprehensive texts covering this wide demand are rare, new books mostly being highly specialised to a particular topic or technique.

Good Clinical Practice in Assisted Reproduction offers this comprehensive approach to the clinical aspects of assisted reproduction. It is unusual among the many books covering this field of biomedicine. Setting out to make data available using a simple form of presentation enabling easy searching, data are presented in 20 straightforward but detailed chapters, each debating topics essential to this form of treatment. Stressing clinical care rather than the scientific aspects of human embryology and their application, successive chapters have a simple and attractive style grouping data under sub-headings at regular intervals. Browsing is made easy without any need for constant recourse to indices or other textbooks. Tables are well laid out and direct, diagrams redrawn to a single style giving a highly attractive layout to the book. References are numerous and complete, present full details to chosen articles and offer advanced knowledge to provide data to more advanced readers in the field. Such simple and direct means of projecting its contents make this book attractive to a wide readership searching for an easy-to-read and easily accessible yet responsible text.
