Great Book
I have just received this book to support my training as a sub-specialist in reproductive medicine. It covers everything I need to get a good foundation in the field of ART. I highly recommend this book to anyone in training or interested in ART and reproductive medicine.

Clinical Reproductive Science
There are many books of this nature available - but this one is by far the best. Concise - easy to read and complete with up-to date information. It is well laid out - each sections lead to the next. Chapters are written in an easy to read format, but remaining its high standard. Also, each chapter is written by leaders in the field. What I liked most is the quality - you can judge a book by its cover in this case. Great source for anyone interesting or training in clinical reproductive science.
