Industry Reviews

'The Evidence for Urology' has been awarded first prize in the Urology category of the 2005 BMA Medical Book Competition. The judges said, "This is an excellent book which reviews the evidence for a number of complex urological questions which are raised by trainees, consultants and sometimes by patients. It is brilliantly laid-out with the right amount of emphasis in each chapter. There are summary points at the end of each chapter which guide the clinician appropriately. The evidence is up to date and well-reviewed, providing a good summary as well as a launching platform for further reading. I would recommend this book to consultants and trainees alike, especially to those coming up to specialty examinations."
