"This is an impressive looking, two volume, 3, 132 page textwith 325 chapters, 150 colour plates and a CD with all the 713figures from the book in colour." (Veterinary Times, 26March 2012)"For now, with no question, this book is the best chance we have ofbeing up-to-date and knowledgeable about all aspects of equinereproduction, thereby able to serve well that most noble and uniqueof animals, the horse." ( Vet Record, 1 December 2011) "This set of books is a wonder, one of those that might keep youreading just for the experience and not saving it until youactually need it. I recommend it for all equine veterinarians whowish to be brought up-to-date on reproduction and equine health."(Veterinary Information Network, July 2011) "A veritable bible of information, it includes everything fromneonatology to assisted reproductive technologies... This is anexcellent book for anyone doing equine reproductive work. Itupdates the previous edition and provides more detail and morein-depth subjects than any other book on the subject I am awareof." (Doody's Reviews, June 2011) "Like the first edition, this second is intended as acomprehensive reference focused on reproduction; but inacknowledgement of the fact that young equine vets need to beknowledgeable in other areas as well, the scope has been expandedand now includes coverage of topics pertaining to radiographpre-sale and examination of the upper respiratory system withendoscopy." (BookNews, April 2011) "At 3288 pages, 325 chapters, and with 250 authors, EquineReproduction is nothing if not ambitious, and is a worthysuccessor to the original edition... The two volumes comeaccompanied by a DVD of 713 (colour) illustrations, which isparticularly nice for viewing ultrasonograms... [contains] awealth of new, updated and relevant information, which anyone withan interest in equine reproduction cannot fail to be impressed byand will find it hard to resist dipping into: a must-havepurchase."
