This is a comprehensive reference for urological disorders, including adult and pediatric problems. Given the nature of the 5 Minute format, it is more useful for medical than surgical approaches to urologic problems, and thus functions well as an adjunct to Glenn's Urologic Surgery, for which Len Gomella is also an editor. As a comprehensive reference it occupies a vacant spot in the market between good but smaller and less comprehensive handbooks and encyclopedic, often multivolume, textbooks. It is useful as a board exam prep tool. The Second Edition includes a number of new entries and a new section of algorithms for some of the most common or problematic diagnoses. The organization of the book has been revamped so that all standard 2-page entries are printed in alphabetical order, and pages are tabbed for quicker access. The short entries are printed in alphabetical order in their own section after the standard entries.
