Throughout history, mankind has wondered about its origin - where he came from and how he got here. ?Where did I come from?? is one of the first questions our own children ask us. But the real question should be ?What are mankind?s building blocks?? For posterity?s sake, the answer is sperm! Rather than giving the female egg all the credit, as is usually the case, let?s shine the light on this silent, unsung hero ? the sperm ? shall we? So to the question ?What came first, the chicken or the egg?? we can unequivocally state Who Cares! Because without sperm, there would be no question to ask now, would there? Being the author and merely a man, I thought it more apropos to go to an actual source for the truth. So to that end, I found one who will walk and talk you through all you need to know about sperm, including things you never knew were possible along with those amazing things you might have heard but wondered if they were really true. And even though you are a human and will be getting your story from a human sperm, s/he will even throw in tidbits about some of your animal friends for comparison purposes. So, come and meet the little guy who will tell you all you need to know.
R. S. Jeyendran, B.V.Sc., M.S., Ph.D., HCLD, ALD. Dr. R. S. Jeyendran has been involved in the field of Andrology (the science of male health) with an emphasis on male reproductive physiology and male fertility since 1974. He is recognized as an expert on sperm physiology, sperm processing, semen analysis, and sperm cryopreservation. He is a Graduate in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Ceylon, Sri Lanka, and received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Minnesota. His expertise led to certifications from the American Board of Bioanalysis (ABB) as a High-complexity Clinical Laboratory Director (HCLD) and Andrology Laboratory Director (ALD). As a researcher, Dr. Jeyendran has contributed significantly to the study of male infertility with emphasis on sperm quality. He has authored three books on Andrology, two trade books, and over 325 book chapters, reviews, publications, and abstracts. Author?s note: ?Sperm is a most intriguing and mysterious cell. Unlike all other cells, it cannot reproduce itself; but when given the proper conditions, it alone propagates an entire species! Being involved in the study of various aspects of sperm for more than 35 years, the idea of writing a book on sperm ? by a sperm ? was natural and inevitable. Enjoy!?
