The Handbook of Contraception: A Guide for Practical Management provides a comprehensive review of contraception methods for all reproductive-aged women, including those who are young and healthy, postpartum, perimenopausal, adolescent, or who have a medical disease. Because of the vast and diverse list of various contraceptive methods available, this text updates the health care provider with information on safety, practical counseling tools, advantages, and disadvantages of each contraception method. This superb reference offers inclusive information on oral, injectable, emergency, and various cervical barrier contraceptives, as well as behavioral methods of contraception and sterilization methods. An extensive review of currently available laparoscopic and hysterscopic tubal sterilization techniques is also included, as well as a chapter introducing the new surgical contraceptive implant, Implanon.

Index
I opened my series editor manuscript of The Handbook of Contraception: A Guide for Practical Management, edited by Drs. Donna Shoupe and Siri Kjos, on a tiny plane on the way to giving a lecture in Albany, NY. I expected to peruse the ma- script, and found that I could not put it down. The Handbook of Contraception: A Guide for Practical Management is an incredibly informative and enjoyable read. In keeping with the objective of this series for primary care clinicians, there is a quality in this title that is uncommon among medical textbooks. The chapters of this book are written with extraordinary intelligence and und- standing, and with attention to practical considerations in the selection and mana- ment of contraceptive options. The authors have reviewed the science behind contraception, including the chemical structure and effects of hormonal contraception, physiology of contraception, efficacy rates, and side effects, as well as the practical considerations that are relevant in helping patients choose between different cont- ceptive options. They do this with a clarity of language and intent that lets the book cover with sufficient detail the full range of questions that any primary care clinician will have regarding any of the traditional or new contraceptive options. Also included in each chapter is a section on "counseling tips," which explicitly answers many of the questions that clinicians and their patients often have when discussing contraceptive options. For a book so useful and well done, the editors and authors deserve our thanks.
