The Handbook of Neuro-Urology covers not only neurogenic bladder dysfunction but also bowel management and sexual and reproductive problems related to neurologic disease. It should, thus, be of value not only to neurologists and urologists but also to physiatrists, primary care physicians, obstetricians, gynecologists, psychiatrists, and counselors.

It then goes on to develop the appropriate and thorough history taking and physical examination of patients with neurologic disorders. Following the history and physical examination, there are chapters on urodynamic and neurologic testing and the evaluation of incontinence. Management options of incontinence are comprehensive, including behavioral modification, exercise, drugs, and surgical interventions.
Specific neurologic disorders are then addressed with chapters on spinal cord injury, brain damage, autonomic nervous system dysfunction, pelvic floor dysfunction, and impotence and ejaculatory failure. These chapters are well developed and provide useful information on the utility
