From the reviews:
"This textbook, aimed to provide the reader with an exhaustive update, even if some points-of-view could be construed as controversial. ... The role of the pathologist was described in a very well-illustrated chapter that presents various pathological features, while the need of effective collaboration with clinicians was also underscored by the authors. ... Most urologists will find valuable information in this outstanding textbook, which is undoubtedly useful for their practice." (European Urology Today, June-July, 2013)"This book addresses the very timely issues of prostate cancer screening, diagnosis, and management of biopsy findings suspicious but short of a diagnosis of prostate cancer. ... This is a timely and outstanding review of complex and controversial issues pertaining to prostate cancer diagnosis. It is a terrific resource for clinicians, public health specialists, and lay people interested in obtaining a thorough understanding of these critical issues that affect so many men." (Mark Hurwitz, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2013)
