The book's strength is also the primary weakness: brief topic sections. There are two parts, the first containing twelve general headings related to the female and the second containing three headings covering male topics. The topics covered are the same as found in much larger, detailed texts, e.g. normal non-pregnant and pregnant animals, parturition, post-partum, and so on. The content of each topic provides only key current pieces of information on the subject. As a result, this would be a good adjunct text to a clinical reproductive course. The text provides logical, organized sections of information briefly describing each topic. This serves to clarify questions or identify topics more thoroughly reviewed in larger texts.
