Obstetrician/gynecologist McIlhaney offers here a compendium of information for women constructed in a question-and-answer format. He addresses important women's health issues, from general health concerns to specific topics such as infertility, marital relationships, and abortion. Most of the information and advice he presents is sound, and his book is very readable. However, as a Christian physician, McIlhaney does have a strong, pervasive moral and religious point of view. For example, he writes: "Life clearly begins at the moment of conception. It does not matter at what stagea pregnancy is terminated, a life is destroyed and a person no longer exists." Also: "Children need a strong foundation of morality and faith to survive the storms of life." He includes numerous biblical references. Recommended only for libraries where patrons have an orientation similar to that of the author.?Linda M.G. Katz, Allegheny Univ. of the Health Sciences Lib., Philadelphia
