`I welcome the new edition of this well-written, fully accessible and practical resource, suitable and valuable for any provider of sexual and reproductive health, whether doctor, nurse or trainee. It retains the advantages, for style and evenness of quality, of single authorship - by a writer with strong academic credentials yet working regularly `at the coal-face'. The chapters are concise with useful check-lists that are not just `short notes', being amplified wherever necessary and supported (unusually for such a text) by more than 200 key references. Having a separate chapter on the IUS (Mirena (TM)) usefully emphasises the distinctness from `ordinary' IUDs, of this brilliant yet still so under-rated method. I liked the case cameos, practical tips, self-assessment questions and the regular section on "sexuality and anxieties" - ensuring the reader is fully attuned to the overall context of counseling, of someone who is so much more than a contraceptive `user'.' - John Guillebaud, Emeritus Professor of Family Planning and Reproductive Health, UCL, UK.
