The facts series of books is designed directly for patients to help them understand their condition and enpower them to cope with it.

This book - Polycystic ovary syndrome by Elsheikh and Murphy – is written by a consultant endocrinologist and a dietitian, and is an excellent addition to the series. It is bang up to date and strikes a nice balance between the theoretical and practical aspects of the condition.

If you're keen in helping to create an expert patient, this will be a valuable tool. It offers practical dietary advice, a useful glossary and an extensive list of useful internet sites at the back.

What's more, the quality of information in the book is very good and I wouldn't hesitate recommending it to nurses interested in the condition, dietitians and medical students or GP registrars. And for the practising GP, tool, there are plenty of useful ideas and tips.
