"Meredith Campbell would be proud of this newest edition...Nearly 4000 pages of practical information [cover] every aspect of urology...With the introduction of new techniques and minimally invasive approaches, we need these volumes to bring us up to speed." JAMA
"Everything a physician needs to know about urologic disease is contained in these pages. All Urologists should have Campbell's Urology in their office as a definitive reference. Also recommended to all Health Science libraries as a general reference text."
The Electric Review, January-February 2005
"The fact that Campbell's has been around for five decades evidences how invaluable this text has become to the medical community. Aside from its value to practicing physicians, Professors of Medicine have used the book as a teaching tool to help residents begin to explore the sub-specialty of Urology. The 8th edition should only continue the tradition of using Meredith Campbell's treatise to instruct aspiring physicians."

1)Reference authors quoted directly in text. This makes the book fairly diffcult to read in a fluid manner and adds extra length to the already lengthy text. Gillenwater is a much more readble text.
2)Some chapters need a better overall framework. The best example of this is the chapter on adrenal pathology which does not provide a very good thorough to the asymptomatic adrenal mass, by far the most common adrenal problem.
3)Often excessive discussion regarding all the studies for and against an issue. I feel that it would be better to state that an issue is unresolved and then list some appropriate ways of attacking the problem.
4)Certain chapters are written in the 1st person. The chapter on the technique of radical retropubic prostatectomy is a personal account and not a reference chapter. MAny innovations from other centers are missing making this chapter somewhat biased.
Overall an excellent and authoratative view or urology
