Book Review:

Any textbook that enters a fifth edition in exactly the same form , shape and scale as the first edition-which I am lucky enough to have before me when writing this review-must have been deliberately designed with considerable caution. Shaw's initial idea was masterly, and his pupil and successor, John Howkins, and Christopher Hudson, his pupil and successor, in effect, got it correctly. In particular , the new edition represents the experience that all three surgeons have or have had in the treatment of gynaecological cancer, and a brief but very important chapter on radiation and cytotoxic chemotherapy improves their management of the surgical procedures. They have not made the error of making the book into a multi-author volume but have, quite obviously, found support from many colleagues and experts since, as they themselves point out, gynaecological surgery has been partly compartmentalized. The single volume also contains ample knowledge for a tyro surgeon to understand the art he's embarking on and for a seasoned surgeon to return to while considering an procedure he hasn't performed for some time. It's good to see the original ideas from Shaw and the illustrations that he commissioned to still play a useful part, but that's not to say there's anything old-fashioned about this book. If there is one adverse observation to make it is that some of the images do not express the message expected. In their place should be considered drawings which eliminate unnecessary detail. Certainly there will be a sixth edition of this very valuable manual which shows meticulously and adventurously how to operate in gynaecology.
