Although men consult their GPs much less frequently than women, they are much more prone to accidents, violence, cancer, and cardiovascular disease (all of which will affect them in the most productive period of their lives). However, as the pressure mounts both at work and at home, men areexpected to make heavier demands on their GPs. This book, the first to be published on men's health in primary care, has been put together by a team of general practitioners, psychologists, sociologists, and epidemiologists. It brings together all the latest research on specifically male healthproblems during childhood, adolescence, adulthood and later life, and adds practical guidelines for GPs, other members of the primary health care team, and patients themselves. Clear management and referral protocols are provided, along with relevant case histories, bulleted lists for ease ofreference, and informative illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

`'Men's health is more than just a fashionable topic. It is high time this subject was dealt with as a single entity in one book, and this volume fits the bill...The editors have done a good job. The accessible style and text flow is consistent, layout is clear ...This excellent presentationis combined with first-rate factual content to produce a useful and up-to-date guide. It is not only erudite but also workmanlike, and this distinguishes it from countless purely academci tomes...'Doctor, Thursday 11 Feb. 1999, p.81
