From the reviews:

"In 300 chapters this book illuminates the clinical relevance of andrology as a fast growing medical discipline. … The editors were able to motivate many experts in andrology from all over the world to write chapters for this book, integrating evidence-based and clinical-based knowledge to helpful recommendations for andrological practice. … This book has the potential to improve the quality of clinical practice in andrology and to stimulate further expansion of this scientific discipline." (A. Jung, Andrologia, Vol. 39 (3), 2007)
