This is the first book in this field, and it should appeal to those who treat men. Physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists in the fields of family medicine, internal medicine, urology, endocrinology, gerontology and others will benefit. Each chapter begins with a case and ends with the discussion of the case. In between, the scientific literature is presented and treatment options explained. Topics covered include androgen deficiency, erectile dysfunction, osteoporosis, prostate cancer, dementia, heart disease, arthritis and other as it relates to men. Gender specific issues are discussed. There is an interesting, thought provoking chapter on preventive gerontology. We have women's health, and I am glad that there is some acknowledgement that men do have specific disease issues as they age.
