From our regular book review column.

The Guidebook of Sexual Medicine is an excellent addition to the literature on sexual medicine.

Three major advantages of this text are that (1) it was written by a psychiatrist and clearly written for psychiatrists, (2) it has a remarkably consistent style of presentation across chapters, and (3) most, but not all, chapters are arranged to correspond with diagnostic categories in DSM-IV. The consistency of the text may relate to the fact that the editor was either an author or coauthor of 7 of the 10 chapters.
