Challenging Concepts in Obstetrics and Gynaecology is a case-based guide to difficult scenarios faced in both fields, covering many of the major sub-speciality areas of each. The 24 cases have been selected to cover a spectrum of challenges in obstetrics and gynaecology. Recognising that any attempt to cover the whole curriculum is impossible, the authors have instead chosen specific, challenging scenarios that are commonly encountered in clinical practice, but by no means have simple answers or outcomes.

Complex cases are examined from a multidisciplinary approach with consideration of diagnostic procedures, practical skills, evidence base, and the application of national and international guidelines. There is also a summary of evidence from the medical literature in various subspecialty areas of obstetrics and gynaecology, alongside current controversies in management. Cases are punctuated by easy-to-read “Learning Points”, “Clinical Tips”, and “Evidence Base” boxes, speeding the learning process as well as providing a handy dip-into guide for those just refreshing their memory.

Each case is set off by an ‘Expert Commentary’ written by an internationally-renowned expert in each field, leaving the reader with both a solid base of knowledge and a nuanced view of current challenges in obstetrics and gynaecology. This collaboration between trainees and experts provides a unique insight into the management of complex and often rare but important obstetrics and gynaecology cases, within a highly user-friendly format and a ready-made means of self-learning and self-testing. Challenging Concepts in Obstetrics and Gynaecology makes for a useful, relevant and interesting read, enabling the reader to readily transfer the knowledge gained to everyday clinical practice.

This review book contains 1,200 multiple-choice questions modeled on the types of questions seen in Part 1 of the board certification exam in adult psychiatry. The questions are accompanied by answers and explanations for why one answer is correct and the others are incorrect.

Questions are divided into 17 specialty categories—basic psychopathology, schizophrenia, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, geriatric psychiatry, child psychiatry, consultation-liaison psychiatry, forensic psychiatry, substance misuse, eating disorders and sexual disorders, mental retardation, sleep disorders, personality disorders, psychopharmacology, psychotherapies, psychology, and neurology. An additional chapter covers miscellaneous topics. All information has been thoroughly reviewed by experienced psychiatrists.

Review

European Journal of Neurology, Volume 12, Issue 11 — “This book, written by four physicians and psychologists from Philadelphia and Cleveland, contains approximately 1200 questions about psychiatry and neurology with detailed answers and explanations, making it one of the few books exclusively targeted at those preparing for Psychiatry Boards, although, according to the authors, it will also be helpful for psychiatry residents and psychiatrists preparing for various examinations. This comprehensive review contains multiple-choice questions each with detailed answers and explanations that will help the candidate to prepare for the examinations and also for daily praxis, and thus, represents a perfect supplement to other psychiatry and neurology resources. Again, special emphasis has been placed on psychopharmacology and neurology, two areas that are covered significantly on the boards. The book will certainly be of value not only for candiates appearing for the Board examinations, but also for psychiatric residents and practising psychiatrists and neurologists.”–European Journal of Neurology

Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, Volume 1, Issue 68 — “This Q&A book is an excellent additional resource for the psychiatry boards. Two attributes set this book apart: the questions are grouped by topic, and there’s a comprehensive index. The grouping by topic makes it easier to find your strengths and weaknesses, and the index helps you find questions you may want to check again. This offering has a good mix of questions relevant to the boards.”
