Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Fred K. Kirchner, Jr., MD (Vanderbilt University School of Medicine)
Description: As the title suggests, this new book deals with the evaluation and treatment of the infertile male.
Purpose: It will be a very useful reference for physicians, especially those who encounter potentially infertile mates infrequently in their practice, such as primary care physicians and many gynecologists and urologists. Many physicians feel inadequate when approaching infertility issues, and this contribution will help fill that gap.
Audience: As noted above, the primary audience will be office-based physicians, but it will also be a valuable addition to a medical school library and some department libraries. Twenty-three contributors representing a wide variety of viewpoints (e.g., andrology, gynecology, urology, psychiatry) enhance the credibility of this book.
Features: This compact book is appropriately illustrated. Tables are used to summarize data from a variety of reference sources concerning a specific topic. This format helps put results in perspective, especially for some of the newer treatment modalities. Numerous references at the end of each chapter will be helpful for the interested reader. A unique feature of the book is a series of tables in the first chapter that direct the reader to the appropriate chapters depending on the specific semen abnormalities detected in the patient.
Assessment: This book is user friendly in the way it directs the reader to pertinent chapters. Additionally, the chapters provide a succinct, but complete, review of some of the newer techniques of treatment, especially assisted reproductive techniques. The chapter on therapeutic donor insemination deals not only with technical issues but also legal and ethical concerns that will be of interest to students of law and medical ethics. The book is attractively priced.
