This beautifully illustrated book covers the whole field of endometriosis, particularly focussing on the background and mainly the endoscopic treatment of this chronic condition. The editors have assembled a number of very fine articles that review the whole area from a strong international field. The book is divided into a number of subsections covering general background, surgical treatment, surgical treatment by laparoscopy, different power sources in laparoscopic surgery, pelvic pain and infertility associated with endometriosis, nonsurgical management of endometriosis, and controversies in endometriosis surgery. Particularly strong are the chapters on surgical treatment by laparoscopy. This book gives an up-to-date overview of the management of this difficult condition, and it should be read widely not only by practising clinicians but also by residents in training. I feel that an extra dimension could be added to the book by including a CD-ROM to illustrate actual operations in real time; however, this would probably increase the book’s cost.

Finally, I must congratulate Professor Sutton, Kevin Jones, and David Adamson on being able to edit the book so well and make it not only informative but also interesting to read.
