Infertility the Facts
Oxford University Press, 2008
This book provides current information and practical advice on the underlying causes, diagnosis and management of infertility in a clear and concise style that is accessible to patients.

"Such a helpful book, I read it in one evening and couldn't put it down! I really enjoyed reading this book, despite it covering such an emotive topic. It was informative, sensitive, and even comical at times! It covers all aspects of infertility, even surrogacy and adoption. I would definitely recommend it."
