5th Edition Reviews: "...John Blandy is a good writer and manages to convey a lot of clinical information in a language that is refreshing from the typical medical text... cheap and cheerful - makes Urology sound quite fun." ( The Student Magazine for Medics & Dentists at Barts & The Royal London ) "...this work provides a highly comprehensive and approachable guide to Urology." ( British Journal of Surgery ) "...the author's simple style makes this an easy way to begin to understand the Urologists' trade." ( Hospital Doctor ) "...there is much to recommend in this book for undergraduates and there is no doubt that it will be widely read by medical students." ( British Journal of Urology ) "A very comprehensive and detailed account of Urology for medical students. Good diagrams, well thought out presentation and style and a layout very friendly to the reader." ( Cambridge Medicine ) "Overall, this new edition is well written and well illustrated. It will certainly become a standard text for senior students and pre-registration house officers attached to a Urology Unit." ( British Journal of Surgery )
