Review:

"The chapters are well written...The Ovary should be of great value to established scholars in the field because it conveniently reviews the developments of the past decade and will quickly bring them up to date. This handsome volume can be highly recommended. Each chapter is amply referenced, making this book a great resource for anyone with a detailed interest in the ovary."

"...a comprehensive reference and value for the money...more for those who are curious to enquire into the scientific basis of clinical medicine."
