Book Review

The Andropause Mystery

Robert S. Tan
Amred Publishing

This is an excellent resource for the lay public as well as healthcare providers.

This humorously illustrated, down-toearth book is written like a story and is very easy to read. It contains case studies and testimonials of Tan’s patients, his personal research, and literature references. The book defines the male aging process very well. The author provides insight about critical issues such as the need for HRT and nutritional supplementation, as well as perspectives on memory loss, erectile dysfunction, muscle loss, and decreased libido. For pharmacists who provide andropause consultations, this is an excellent book to recommend for their patients. This book is for men, as Dr. Wright’s Natural Hormone Replacement is for women. There is also an interactive website (http://www.andropausemystery. com) to complement the book, where one can learn more about andropause and Tan’s clinical research, as well as provide feedback.
