THERE are few areas in medicine that strike such a chord as assisted reproduction, probably because so many of us have, at some time, engaged in the baby-making process, either through careful planning and provision or through carefree recreation.
Baby-Making by Bart Fauser and Paul Devroey brings a fresh and accessible perspective to this modern and progressive discipline. Both authors have a long-standing reputation in the field and a wealth of peer-reviewed publications. Their international profiles rest on reputations for solid, evidence-based medicine - and also the courage to pursue and publish on novel techniques such as gentler forms of IVF and efforts to reduce the incidence of multiple pregnancy. They are ably assisted in this new project by Simon Brown, a journalist who has written in this area for many years and is renowned for his insider knowledge.
