As my past course candidates know, I am a great fan of the “Handbook of Gynaecological Oncology” by Shafi, Luesley and Jordan. It summarised all you needed to know about gynae cancers in 277 A5 size pages, with very little padding and fine print, and was as readable and enjoyable as the classic gold standard of Nelson-Piercy’s Handbook of Obstetric Medicine. However, I didn’t recommend this book in 2009; the reason was that it had aged (it was published in 2001). So, imagine my delight when I found a new book “Gynaecological oncology” by Shafi, Earl and Tan! I bought it and have already read half of it, and it is proving to be an absolute pleasure! This book is likely to take the pain outof your MRCOG oncology revision! Just like “Mr Muscle” kitchen cleaner, it makes you love the job you hate! I highly recommend it: 205 pages of highly relevant stuff for MRCOG.
Gynaecological Oncology is published by Cambridge University Press
