Textbook of Men's Health and Aging: 2nd Edition

    Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


    The first edition of "Textbook of Men's Health" did much to establish and define the scope of the emerging subspecialty of aging men's health. This revised and updated edition, with new sections on basic sciences and sexual dysfunction, has a small but significant change of approach - reflected in the new title. The central mission of the new edition is to unpick normal physiologic aging in men from pathologic processes, eschewing any material that is routinely available in the standard textbooks of medicine and geriatrics in order to maintain a uniquely male perspective. This means a focus on the age-related decline in sex steroids and other hormones and the pathological and clinical consequences. Wherever possible, the book records consensus on diagnostic criteria, emphasizes evidence-based medicine and highlights translational science.
