Abstract:
An easy-to-read guide to men's health written by two doctors who have decades of clinical experience treating sexual problems, prostate problems, urinary leakage, pelvic pain, urinary tract infections, and questions about infertility. They have seen countless male patients describe the problem simply as "something's not right down there," either because they are embarrassed about the issues or unaware of them. Fifty percent of men will have one or more of the conditions discussed in this book during their lifetime. With humor, analogies, illustrations, and case examples, the doctors share their knowledge of the penis, prostate, and testicles. They start with a discussion of male anatomy, covering the different organs, tubes, and hormones. They then move on to cover various problems, including erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, cancer, testosterone deficiency, STDs, and how they can be treated. This guide will help men make informed decisions about their medical care.

Summary

Summary



This book is a great asset to all men who need to make their own health a priority."―Joe Gibbs, NFL Hall of Fame coach and owner of 4x NASCAR champion Joe Gibbs Racing

Everything you need to know about men's health in one handy package.

In their decades of clinical practice, Dr. Neil Baum and Dr. Scott Miller have treated sexual problems, prostate problems, urinary leakage, pelvic pain, urinary tract infections, and questions about infertility. They have seen countless male patients describe the problem simply as "something's not right down there," either because they are embarrassed about the issues or unaware of them. How's It Hanging? provides an easy-to-read guide to men's health. It is a sorely needed reference, during their lifetime 50 percent of men will have one of more of the conditions discussed in the book.

With an appropriate use of humor, analogies, illustrations, and case examples, the doctors share their knowledge of the penis, prostate, and testicles. They start with a discussion of male anatomy, covering the different organs, tubes, and hormones. They then move on to cover various problems, including erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, cancer, testosterone deficiency, STDs, and how they can be treated.

How's It Hanging? will help men make informed decisions about their medical care. Instead of suffering in silence, they will be more likely to discuss these issues with their friends and family and seek help when needed. And they will be better patients, able to communicate with their physicians about what's going on "down there."

Library Journal Review

Globally, men tend to be in worse health than women, and yet it is hard to find solid evidence-based books on men's health for medical practitioners or general consumers. Consumer "health" books for men seem to deal mainly with nutrition and exercise, to enlarge muscles, or how to increase penis size for better sex. Harvard Men's Health Watch, a monthly newsletter, does provide updated health news, but The Harvard Medical School Guide to Men's Health, a solid text overall, is more than ten years old. Two new books, one by Baum (clinical urology, Tulane Medical Sch.) and urologist and medical talk show host Miller; the other by German urologist Gralla, try to fill some of this gap, although they only focus on the genitals. Neither volume does a good job of explaining the normal development, physiology, genetics, and function of the various parts that make up the male genitourinary system, nor the variations that can occur. Both titles focus on all the various medical problems a man might have, but only Baum and Miller offer references, although some include dubious websites, and provide a listing of useful resources in one chapter. As both are written by medical specialists, it would have been helpful if citations for evidence-based medicine and current research, especially when it comes to drug and supplement recommendations, were included. VERDICT Baum and Miller's work is the stronger of the two choices and recommended for readers looking for general information on men's genitourinary health.--Margaret Henderson, Ramona, CA © Copyright 2018.
