This book is a great asset to all men who need to make their own health a priority."Joe Gibbs, NFL Hall of Fame coach and owner of 4x NASCAR champion Joe Gibbs Racing
Everything you need to know about men's health in one handy package.
In their decades of clinical practice, Dr. Neil Baum and Dr. Scott Miller have treated sexual problems, prostate problems, urinary leakage, pelvic pain, urinary tract infections, and questions about infertility. They have seen countless male patients describe the problem simply as "something's not right down there," either because they are embarrassed about the issues or unaware of them. How's It Hanging? provides an easy-to-read guide to men's health. It is a sorely needed reference, during their lifetime 50 percent of men will have one of more of the conditions discussed in the book.
With an appropriate use of humor, analogies, illustrations, and case examples, the doctors share their knowledge of the penis, prostate, and testicles. They start with a discussion of male anatomy, covering the different organs, tubes, and hormones. They then move on to cover various problems, including erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, cancer, testosterone deficiency, STDs, and how they can be treated.
How's It Hanging? will help men make informed decisions about their medical care. Instead of suffering in silence, they will be more likely to discuss these issues with their friends and family and seek help when needed. And they will be better patients, able to communicate with their physicians about what's going on "down there."
