Abstract
Androgen Deficiency and Testosterone Replacement: Current Controversies and Strategies explores the difficulties around the diagnosis and treatment of androgen deficiency. The text examines the available evidence concerning the diagnosis and treatment of men with low testosterone. It also examines controversies in the identification and management of these men. While the information contained within will be of use to those who specialize in androgen deficiency and sexual medicine, the scope of the book will serve as a source of basic information about testosterone replacement and as a source of reasoned analysis of the controversies surrounding testosterone replacement in the aging male. Physicians and physician extenders will be able to apply evidence management principles to the evaluation and treatment of men with testosterone deficiency; supported by the most recent practice guidelines available. The authors represent a select group of physicians with expertise in androgen deficiency and replacement. Androgen Deficiency and Testosterone Replacement: Current Controversies and Strategies will be of great value to all physicians and physician extenders who deliver health care to men of all ages.

Abstract
Men's Health is a concise, didactic compendium that covers three important aspects of male sexual health: Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome; Premature Ejaculation and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs). The chapters that deal with Testosterone Deficiency Syndrome cover the epidemiology of the condition in the local context, the science behind the condition, its clinical presentation and treatment choices. The section on Premature Ejaculation advises the health practitioner on how to investigate this condition and describes the various treatment options available to the patient. The chapters on Sexually Transmitted Infections cover special aspects of the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of STIs occurring in Men which are not normally highlighted in the usual texts on STI management. Written by experts in the field, Men's Health is a valuable and timely resource for urologists, andrologists, endocrinologists as well as other health professionals practicing in these areas.

Abstract
Clinical Urologic Endocrinology: Principles for Men's Health provides an organized, accessible reference on men's endocrinological health. Over 30 million men in the US alone suffer from erectile dysfunction and over 13 million men in the US suffer from hypogonadism (low testosterone). One out of seven couples also suffer from subfertility of which 50-60% have male factor involvement. More and more men are coming forward to seek treatment for such issues, which in the past were considered taboo and there is a strong need for a book which provides guidance for practitioners who support men in their reproductive and sexual concerns. This book covers in depth the key issues in male reproductive health in one easy-to-use resource. Clinical Urologic Endocrinology: Principles for Men's Health is a valuable reference for urologists, endocrinologists, internal medicine physicians, family medicine physicians, sex therapists, and allied health professionals providing care for men in the areas of sexual health, fertility, and men's endocrinological health.
