Rezensionen
"Like the first edition, this second is intended as a comprehensive reference focused on reproduction; but in acknowledgement of the fact that young equine vets need to be knowledgeable in other areas as well, the scope has been expanded and now includes coverage of topics pertaining to radiograph pre-sale and examination of the upper respiratory system with endoscopy." (Booknews, 1 April 2011)

"At 3288 pages, 325 chapters, and with 250 authors, Equine Reproduction is nothing if not ambitious, and is a worthy successor to the original edition.... The two volumes come accompanied by a DVD of 713 (colour) illustrations, which is particularly nice for viewing ultrasonograms.... [contains] a wealth of new, updated and relevant information, which anyone with an interest in equine reproduction cannot fail to be impressed by and will find it hard to resist dipping into: a must-have purchase." (Veterinary Record, March 2011)
