Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is the seventeenth edition of a unique general urology book that can be used by medical students for basic information, but also has enough detail to make it an excellent resource for first and second year urology residents....This is an excellent book due to its timeliness with new material, user friendly style, and the unique way it accommodates medical students, urology residents, and general medicine physicians who have a peripheral interest in urology issues. This is one of the better books for this audience. With the advances in urology since 2004, the new edition is definitely welcome." 3 Stars."--Doody's Review Service (Doody's 2008-11-18)

Format: Paperback
Smith's General Urology is written by two absolute giants in the field of Urology in Jack McAninch and Emil Tanagho from UCSF. If you're a urology resident you probably own it just to keep on your shelf. In reality, this is a book aimed at senior medical students or junior residents. The goal of this book is not to be a titrated Campbell's. Also, don't compare it to pocket guide. This book, if you actually read it, is written very well. Sitting down with this book on a rare weekend off, it's really an enjoyable read. No, it doesn't site every source and study like Campbells, but that can get tedious at times. Also, pocket guide to urology is great for an in between case 5 minute refresher, or reading while commuting kinda deal. If you are at home and have ample time, reading a real text book such as Smiths, Campbell's, or even Penn Clinical Manual is much more enjoyable. Note, this book is great for the basics, infections, anatomy, kidney stones, trauma, radiology, history and physical etc. These subjects do not advance at the rate of prostate/renal/bladder cancer, female urology, etc. For current information on these, one really needs to look at the latest literature.

In essence, if you're a senior student or junior resident who wants a good foundation in the basics of urology without getting bogged down by excess citations and detailed intraoperative technique (that you won't be apart of for many years!) then this is a nice little read. If you are, or will be a urology resident, you may as well get it as a testament to the authors and for another book on your shelf to make you look smart.

First of all i d like to say that i ordered the book the 1st of july and i had it here in greece in fourteen days only! Really convenient! When it comes to the book, i have to say it is very well organised in 45 chapters. The first 10 represent an introduction to urology and the rest give further information. Moreover, the 33th chapter was really helpfull, explaining acute renal failure, a confusing subject for students and some generalists. The only thing i want to mention is that, although the embryology chapter is well written it lacks of pictures and i struggled to understand the mechanism of the congenital deficiencies.

Concise, objective and up to date.
You can make a good review ou a quick access to a subject with this book.
Don't expect that you can have everytinhg in it. That you'll only find in Campbell's.
Even to Brazil it came very fast!

By Volkan Ulker on September 13, 2012
Format: Paperback
Smith's General Urology is probably the one of the best selling books in Urology. Its compact and easily reading book, especially useful for preparing to exams. This book is not only for medical students but also for urology residents. Most of the chapters are well designed. On the other hand, some chapters are full of out dated information and treatment modalities. I'm a urologist since 1996 and I would say that, when you read the much older editions of this book, you can see that some chapters are completely same. Also, its hard to believe that there is no chapter about scrotal diseases (varicocele, hydrocele etc)!!!
