From The CriticsReviewer: Allen D. Seftel, MD (Case Western Reserve University)
Description: This is an easy to read book written for all healthcare professionals interested in the field of sexual dysfunction. There are seven short, concise chapters with many illustrations.
Purpose: The purpose is to update healthcare professionals on the current, state-of-the-art understanding and treatment options for men with erectile dysfunction. These are worthy objectives, for there is new information on these topics available on a regular basis, and this book helps with the dissemination of information.
Audience: It is written for all healthcare professionals interested in this area, but it may be too advanced for the beginner. It is written by three acknowledged experts in this area.
Features: This book discusses the epidemiology of erectile dysfunction, the physiology of erections, the pathophysiology of erectile dysfunction and the treatment options. The strengths of this book include the many simple, quality illustrations; limited yet timely references; listings of various web sites for information; and use of key points. Because there are no quick tips or hints to how to approach the topic, how to start the evaluation, or how to continue once started, the book may be too advanced for beginners.
Assessment: This is a well-written, timely handbook that is useful for those interested in this field. The well-done illustrations are of benefit to the clinician and patient alike. There are few other books n this field that are this concise, such as the Contemporary Diagnosis and Management of Male Erectile Dysfunction by Lue (Handbooks in Health Care, 1999). This book is outstanding in that regard.
