From the reviews:

“Book cover several common urologic problems … . This is a valuable resource not only for practicing urologists, but also for general practitioners … advanced practice nurses or physician assistants, medical students, and residents-trainees. It also can serve as a quick review of medical therapeutics for those preparing for board certification/recertification. … excellent resource for anyone who cares for patients with common urologic conditions. The chapters are concise, yet adequately cover the important aspects of the disease process and associated drug therapy.” (Marcus L. Quek, Doody’s Review Service, May, 2010)

“This small but concise book neatly summarises the various aspects of pharmaco-therapeutic agents currently used in urological practice … . The chapters are easy to read and well referenced. … an excellent, well laid out, succinct and easy to read pocket-guide to current medical therapeutics in urology and would be a valuable resource for medical students, junior doctors, urology trainees, general practitioners and office urologists. It would certainly serve well as a useful and handy reference guide in any urological library.” (Anuj Goyal, Urology News, Vol. 14 (6), September/October, 2010)
