Professor Caruthers does an outstanding job of describing the causality and most avenues for the management of this imbalance that is a deeply profound negative impost to the mid-life male and their spouses/partners. The only criticism would perhaps the need for more in relation to the effects of chronic pain (age related conditions that creep into life) and how the testosterone imbalance further impacts the mid-life male body. This revolution, were it to gain more momentum, could ostensibly explain out of the blue male suicides and men going "off the rails" in mid life crises. The book is well written to build the understanding of the VERY complex interactions involved but it handles this well. I hope more practitioners read his work as a primer and go on from there. Professor Caruthers is a fine communicator with an incredibly sensitive and deep understanding of this subject.
If anything, Professor Caruthers awareness of the strength of his language in order to not be alarmist, makes this sound a tad conservative about the impact of this terribly significant condition on the mid-life male particularly if the book is only scan-read. A full read is necessary not because of the difficulty in understanding his choice of language but more due to the complex issues he is discussing.

This is an excellent book on a serious subject that needs to be better recognised and treated and is NOT just in the mind. It is utterly REAL. Having said that, Professor Caruthers is making a very honest attempt to bring the realisation that the condition is both significant and poignant in an unoffensive (at all levels) and easy to read style without becoming too text book like thus retaining appeal for the lay man as well as the medical professional.

Highly recommended for doctors, males and their partners.

If you are an older male and wish to keep your youthful body, then this book is for you. It is written in a easy to read style and presents the case for testosterone replacement. Even your doctor may like to read this presentation. My doctor had already read it so I gave her the companion book by the same doctor entitled: "Testosterone Resistance"

This review was written around the time this book appeared in 2001.

I had a lot of resistance to reading this book. Now that I have just crossed another threshold (not that I'm counting or anything!) and am closer to being 50 years old than to being 35, I think a certain level of denial has been percolating. I know I'm getting older, and I'm going through certain changes, but I don't want to think about it too much. I don't have male menopause, but reading this book was challenging at first as it raised issues I'd rather not dwell on.

Well, The Testosterone Revolution can help the reader to think about these things, and in the end, that's a very good thing. In parallel to my personal reticence, society as a whole as well as the medical profession has been reluctant to educate itself about the numerous physical, mental, and emotional changes men go through when they hit "male menopause," a decline in usable testosterone in the body which Carruthers believes would more properly be called andropause. Andropause typically affects a middle-aged man who finds himself losing a number of things he may have always taken for granted--his libido, his ability to obtain and maintain erections, his energy, his positive attitude, his relatively flat stomach. As a man starts to find himself going through andropause, he may become quickly fatigued, and somewhat paradoxically may also be much more irritable than previously. In fact, severe depression or a serious life crisis are also not uncommon results. But a psychologically based mid-life crisis is not necessarily connected with the medical condition known as andropause.

As Carruthers explains, various forms of treatment, all designed to generate more active, usable testosterone in the male body, can provide dramatic, yet safe relief for these symptoms. Carruthers walks us through centuries of medical history, detailing the strong resistance to acknowledging this condition that persists even to the present day. Fortunately, certain intrepid physicians over past decades risked their careers to bring a private testosterone revolution to their suffering patients. One major problem has been getting the needy patient to a competent physician knowledgeable about this issue. Numerous potential roadblocks exist--the individual's own resistance and fear, the many doctors ignorant of or even actively hostile to treating a patient for the symptoms of andropause, limitations that exist in the US and elsewhere due to certain of the best medicines not being available, etc.

Carruthers identifies a lot of fascinating points about testosterone that may not be familiar to readers. Testosterone is present in women as well as men, though blood levels of the hormone in men are 10-20 times that of women, and it stimulates the libido in women as well. Testosterone affects our health throughout life and might also be known as "the success hormone." Most high achievers, Nobel prize winners, Hollywood directors, race car drivers, etc. have extremely high testosterone levels. Interestingly, one's level of the hormone tends to peak right after a high-intensity challenge. For example, some of the highest levels of testosterone ever observed were seen in race car drivers immediately following an event. Even today many critics of andropause theory are confused by the fact that blood levels of total testosterone only decrease slightly up to age 70. The explanation is that as men age, the hormone is held in the blood in unusable forms and so less and less is biologically available to our body.

Carruthers repeatedly stresses that alcohol wreaks havoc on testosterone levels. Beer is worse than wine because it contains phyto-estrogens which act to partially chemically castrate the male. As Carruthers memorably phrases it, "the liver forgives and forgets, but the testis harbors grudges, so the bar-room bruisers of today are likely to be the lousy lovers of tomorrow."

One thing Carruthers convinced me of with a couple well-chosen horror stories--vasectomy is a risky enterprise. In addition to some potentially horrific risks stemming from the surgery's immediate results, it also exposes a man to the risk of suffering andropause, a serious side effect about which doctors evidently rarely inform patients considering the procedure.

Testosterone replacement therapy works! A variety of delivery techniques exist including injections, pills, pellets, and patches that need to be replaced every six months and which may eventually prove the clear method of choice. Carruthers devotes an entire chapter to Viagra and the changes its appearance and success have wrought.

This is about much more than sex. Maintaining our vitality and virility into our middle and late years is the key to managing stress, avoiding burnout, and to enjoying our families and our work well into our mature years. Having overcome my initial resistance, I have to take my hat off to Dr. Malcolm Carruthers, dedicated activist and eloquent author, fighting the good fight to help all of us to maximize our enjoyment of life and effectiveness for as long as possible. Bravo!
