SUMMARY

Prostate cancer is not only the most common genitourinary tumor but, accordยญ ing to the tumor registry of Munich, the male tumor with the highest inciยญ dence. The wide range of information concerning this important disease has been dealt with comprehensively. In a time when interested urologists can surf in the internet to find an article they are looking for, they usually get lost because of the flood of papers covering the same subject. Furthermore, they are still alone in deciding which scientific contribution to believe and which will serve their patients best. A well-edited book such as this, however, proviยญ des quick access to all pertinent questions. These renowned authors have taken on the responsibility of writing a balanced report and producing a sort of a guideline, i. e. , a diagnostic or therapeutic standard. The editors are to be congratulated on mastering such a formidable task, bringing together the leading names in prostate cancer to present their views on all the questions one might have about this disease. I trust that this book will serve urologists in practice and their patients well. J. E.
