Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:"This is intended as a reference on clinical andrology, a worthy objective as there are relatively few outstanding textbooks in this field. The target audience is broad, and includes andrologists, urologists, endocrinologists, gynecologists, internists, pediatricians, and basic scientists. . The chapters are well written and full of interesting details. The illustrations are excellent, and each section includes important comments . . This is an excellent comprehensive review of clinical andrology that has been extensively updated from the previous edition." (Ronald N. Cohen, Doody's Review Service, June, 2010)
