Description 0890876649 From Library Journal Infertility has become big business on the American medical scene, and popular books on the topic have correspondingly proliferated. The Infertility Book is one of the better efforts to come along in the past few years. The book is filled with true-to-life vignettes (not every couple happily comes home with a baby), helpful information on procedures, and what to expect each step of the way during the standard infertility work-up. The final chapters give compassionate information on such alternatives as adoption, surrogate mothers, and child-free living. Libraries that own the 1987 edition of this book, now out of print,will still want to consider buying this revised edition, mainly for its excellent chapter on ART (assisted reproductive technology) in which a number of remarkable breakthroughs have been made in recent years. If your library can only afford one or two books in this area, The Infertility Book should be one of them. Recommended for all public libraries and consumer health collections. - Monica Engle, Pikes Peak Lib. Dist . , Colorado Springs Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.
