Reviews

“This is an extremely useful all-in-one laboratory reference manual on semen analysis. It provides complete coverage of experimental assays related to semen analysis and thus it overcomes the limitations of other comparable publications. This book will be useful for students, teachers, and practitioners of andrology.” (Prabhakara P. Reddi, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2018)
