An encyclopedia can be "a work containing exhaustive information on some one branch of knowledge" (Oxford English Dictionary). This three-volume, 3432-page work fits the definition exactly. Every aspect of current urologic knowledge and practice is covered in this expanded edition, which includes 22 new chapters, 32 new authors, and even a new coeditor. It's obvious that a lot of progress has been made since 1935, when my father's text contained 1100 pages and could be written by one author.
