Marcel Waldinger is one of the leading PE researchers in the world and a staunch proponent of the neurobiological origin theory of the disorder. Based on his own research, findings, and experience, Dr. Waldinger carefully examines the current PE literature, existing theory, and treatment strategies (both behavioral and the recent psycho-pharmacological), before presenting his own theory of the basis of PE. Central to the assessment and treatment of PE are many vaguely defined terms, and in this text Dr. Waldinger anchors his theory in comprehensive definitions of the dysfunction itself and other terms vital to a more fundamental understanding of PE. After presenting the multidisciplinary support of his theory, the author considers future treatment strategies and the implications of current pharmaceutical research and impending products. This volume represents the most current research on this disorder and is the only book dedicated exclusively to PE, making it an essential text for libraries and research institutions. It will appeal to clinical sex therapists and physicians with an interest in the leading research, and will likely be referenced and cited in articles and books for years to come.
