This book is ably written by two well informed authorities; but one wonders about the necessity of a book dealing exclusively with antenatal care. Every good textbook on obstetrics, certainly those written by American authors, contains a large section which is devoted to this subject. In fact, in at least two textbooks much more information is given about prenatal care than is contained in this book. However, if there is need for such a book in Great Britain, and apparently there is, this book will fulfil its purpose admirably. It contains all the information a general practitioner should know about antenatal care. The information given is practical and the treatment outlined for the different complications is sound. A special chapter is devoted to the subject of pain in pregnancy and a chapter on postnatal care is included in the book for the sake of completeness.
