No current book tells the clinician how to handle a patient with infertility and abnormal semen analysis who arrives in front of him or her in the infertility clinic. The time is right for a new book that looks at the clinical aspects of this subject only and which is directed specifically at the clinicians. One must remember that the majority of clinicians that treat male infertility are gynaecologists who, unlike the author have had no training whatsoever in urology. The problem of examining let alone treating the infertile man is therefore very daunting.
Anne M. Jequier is the author of Male Infertility: A Guide for the Clinician, published by Wiley.
