A very good, clear, concise guide to testosterone replacement therapy. It talks about, and dispels, all the popular myths surrounding the dangers and gives a good overview off the pros and cons of the different treatment options. It's pretty quick to dismiss any possible natural therapies and doesn't really go into any possible causes. I would have liked a little more depth overall but can't really knock it for that. Seems like a really good introduction to the subject for anyone who is interested.
