"Due to the wealth of new information that we have gained over the last 15 years, a new edition is absolutely necessary to keep pace with the study of environmental substances and their effects on reproduction and development ... This book easily leads the pack in the field of research toxicology. For those interested in keeping current in this field, it is a must-have. It is important to note that this book should be on the shelf of any physician-scientist studying the impact of environmental exposures on human health, reproduction, and development."

"This new edition of the Target Organ Toxicology series is a welcome addition to the series and, as with the previous two editions, it has brought together the leading authorities in the field to provide an authoritative text on the increasingly important topic of reproductive toxicology. The breadth of the topics covered is truly impressive and while there is continuity with the previous two editions, this third edition covers areas which will undoubtedly be a surprise to some, as it was to this reviewer."
