“This original textbook tackled a very important public health problem and the authors must be congratulated for their didactic approach. Their work is exhausted and well-illustrated, and will be very useful for all practitioners involved in obstetrics, female urology, and pelvic floor rehabilitation.” (European Urology Today, Vol. 29 (4), August-September, 2017)
