The Author 

Sammy Lee , November 10, 1999. I wrote this book for patients` use as well as others! This is not meant to be a definitive book about counselling. There are many other better books. I wanted to highlight the plight of men with male infertility and to offer some insight into how they feel and respond to the stigma. Nor did I intend to write a weighty tome and to set out my stall as an all knowing "expert". I am merely a traveller with some insight which I wish to share. In sharing, I hope to help dispell the stigma that attaches to male infertility.

From the Publisher

This book clearly outlines the theory behind reproductive counselling and offers models of counselling specifically related to male infertility. The text examines men's feelings and the threat which infertility can present to the male masculinity.

From Booknews

Edelstein (sociology, Towson State U.) describes heroes of America's past, explaining the appeal of men such as Billy the Kid, Babe Ruth, and Martin Luther King Jr., and looks at how the fields from which Americans once drew their heroes have changed or disappeared, obstructing the creation of new heroes. He discusses the ramifications of the disappearance of the individual American hero, and the emergence of group and local heroism. For general readers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
