The book is intended for primary care practitioners and specialists in the diseases that commonly afflict men (urology, diabetes, cardiology, HIV). The editors and contributors are American and English, and they confine themselves to information about adult men. Every possible topic and disease process that involves men is covered some in more detail than others. Social issues, risk behaviours and suicide provide an important introduction, with the rest of the book covering medical conditions such as cardiac disease, obesity, diabetes, prostate and bladder disorders, erectile dysfunction, male cancers and Peyronies disease. Information is included on pathogenesis and treatment, the detail is not excessive, and the chapters are just the right size for easy reading. Plenty of references are provided for those seeking further information.
