Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This comprehensive guide on female puberty is heavy on anatomy and physiology as well as endocrinology. … The book is written at the level of the resident, although practicing physicians in this area would benefit from it. … This is an excellent, thorough book on a very specific patient problem. It is easy to see how advances in the field will make future updates necessary.” (Anthony Shanks, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2014)
