"This seminal atlas is a strong addition to the urologic literature. Urologists, trainees, and, especially, budding laparoscopic/robotic surgeons will find this not only educational, but also exciting. Whether accessed in the library or on the train, the atlas's strongest attributes are its organization and its availability in print and digital formats for the urologist on the go."
