The RCOG invited 26 of the world's leading experts from the UK, Europe, the USA and Canada and Japan, to a study group in February 2006, each contributing the latest available information in this vital area. The editors have paid great attention to accuracy but also to readability. The fact that the contributors came together to check, refine and develop their chapters and the speed with which the book has been produced have resulted in a volume which is particularly valuable for updating clinical practice in this key area. This is a book that all obstetricians, cardiologists and anaesthetists dealing with pregnant women with heart disease should read.

Many women fail to present in the clinic when symptomatic, because of responsibilities at home or at work. Often the first presentation follows a cardiac event. Women are excluded from many clinical trials regardless of age or cardiac history, simply because most trials are aimed at male patients. This best-selling, updated title, aimed at changing this treatment of women's cardiac issues, covers all aspects of female cardiovascular disease. It is required reading for all practitioners who assess female patients.
