REVIEW OF PREVIOUS EDITION:
Clearly much thought has gone into its organization and compartmentalization, allowing this rather comprehensive book to be easily read and regularly consulted. The book also features a range of authors who have contributed to this dynamic field. The reader is ensured multiple perspectives and the wisdom of true authorities...All urologists reading this book should come away with a more extensive knowledge base regarding matters of female urology. - The Journal of Urology
