"This most recent edition of Meredith Campbell's classic text continues to live up to its heritage as the single most valuable text for urologists. Although there are considerable changes in organization, the complete compendium of urologic subject matter remains and is presented in a logical manner. The online companion edition is a versatile and powerful tool easily accessible via the Internet. The new editorial staff should be commended for their hard work in revising and updating this most important urologic reference."
