This comprehensive work includes painstaking reviews on what is known about aging in men and how it affects sexual function. Although not rigorously systematic in its review of the evidence, it has the consistency of a single-author approach, a rarity these days in academic publishing. The book covers a wide territory, including sexual function and physical status, the diseases of aging, the use of substances and prescribed drugs, and the psychological changes that accompany aging. A chapter specifically devoted to gay men is to be welcomed. The price paid for such a comprehensive coverage is lack of depth in several chapters. For example, the social context of aging and sexual function is covered in a mere seven pages.
