Description: This is a first edition comprehensive textbook on male sexual dysfunction.

Purpose: The book's purpose is provide a multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of male infertility and erectile dysfunction. Particular emphasis has been given to the rapid advances in treatment alternatives. These goals are very timely for the 1990s, an exciting time for the understanding of the disease processes in a previously underdiagnosed and undertreated field. While providing detailed discussions on the pathophysiology of disease processes, the emphasis is on treatment. The authors have clearly achieved their objectives in a state-of-the-art fashion. One of the very few weaknesses is the lack of an overview section providing an algorithm-like approach to the causes and various methods of diagnosis of erectile dysfunction.

Audience: The targeted audiences are the practicing andrologist and urologist, who both will benefit from this book. The multiple contributors are regarded as the experts in the field.

Features: The textbook is well-organized with an excellent appearance and easily understandable, high-quality illustrations. The figures on surgical technique are particularly well presented. The usage of a partial, annotated bibliography is a very helpful feature. Because most chapters have a nicely summarized background, the references are quite current and pertinent.

Assessment: This book is an outstanding, current reference for the practicing andrologist/urologist. The chapters are well-written, avoidrepetition, and provide a comprehensive view of this multidisciplinary field. This textbook is a must for the library, the bookstore, and any physician with an interest in male sexual dysfunction. This text represents one of the best references on its subject.
