Review Text

  • By Editorial Coordinator on 15 March 2012

    At first glance this book appears to be a vintage Rolls Royce, it has a heavy authentic feel, over 500 pages and exudes quality all the way from the glossy photographic paper throughout to the 37 undoubted experts in their field who have been brought together by the two editors. The book comprises 40 chapters and four appendices divided into nine parts, the first of which, almost predictably is devoted to the history of female pelvic surgery. From here, basic science is addressed in the second part followed on by a section on evaluation and then management of pelvic organ prolapse and stress incontinence. Faecal incontinence and difficult voiding are afforded their own individual sections and from here the book goes on to tackle more specific conditions such as urinary tract infection and urethral diverticula.Towards the end of the book, there is a section, and indeed a single chapter, on research methods and the book closes with a section on difficult cases and expert discussion for which 32 experts were drafted in.Even before the first chapter in this book, we are treated to nine colour images - the shape of things to come? Sadly not, this is the extent of colour in this otherwise excellent book which then descends into the abyss of black and white regardless of image, line drawing, table or operative photograph. This is the major flaw in an otherwise well thought out and well executed text.There are plenty of diagrams and tables but these all lack the sparkle of colour which so often makes the difference between a heavy and an enjoyable read.I think this is an excellent offering but let down slightly by the lack of imagination and colour that one would expect of a true Roller in its field - perhaps more of a Lexus? (They do come in grey!!)A good edition to the unit library but probably not one for the personal bookshelf unless you are a true enthusiast (or an author!)Ian Pearce,Consultant Urological Surgeon,Manchester Royal Infirmary.
