Abstract
Written for the clinician and other healthcare professionals who treat and counsel pregnant women and women of child-bearing age, Handbook of Nutrition and Pregnancy is an excellent and easy-to-use resource in the practical form of a handbook. In Handbook of Nutrition and Pregnancy, the authors provide historical perspective and background to support recommendations which are provided in each chapter, importantly for the practitioners, recommendations and guidelines have been summarized and provided in tables that are easy to locate and interpret. This book discusses relevant topics in the scientific community such as determining to what extent prenatal and perinatal environmental factors are linked to childhood and adult obesity and chronic diseases. This book also examines issues that are common to both the developed and the developing worlds and includes chapters that are specific to nutritional and reproductive factors seen mainly in developing countries. These chapters discuss contemporary issues that impact both the woman and the developing infant. Also covered in several chapters is a review of nutritional as well as physiological factors that either increase or decrease the potential for high risk pregnancies such as gestational diabetes mellitus, Type I and Type II diabetes mellitus, preeclampsia, anemia, and so forth. Handbook of Nutrition and Pregnancy is a comprehensive volume that includes up-to-date information in chapters written by the leaders in the fields of diet, nutrients, ingredients, environmental factors and physiological consequences addressing the needs of women of childbearing potential and pregnant women.

Abstract
This book is a compact question-based review of the most critical topics an obstetrician will come across in practice. Each chapter includes 10-30 multiple-choice questions designed to test the readers understanding surrounding one obstetric topic. Based on all 45 obstetric based practice bulletins by ACOG, this text is designed to keep practitioners up-to-date with the latest evidence based medicine. Sample topics include: anemia in pregnancy, screening for fetal chromosomal abnormalities, and vaginal birth after previous cesarean delivery. This is an ideal tool for attendings and clerkship directors who frequently test residents and medical students during rounds and in the classroom. This review also proves useful for practicing physicians and physicians-in-training who want to self-evaluate their comprehension and study for board examinations.
