It is rare that an internist and a surgeon get together in compiling a book, particularly in so complicated an area as endocrinology. In this instance the outcome reflects careful deliberation with a constant eye on the goal of practical usefulness. Add to this the intimate experience of many years of shared work in a university hospital center (Belfast) and the outcome is a clinically oriented approach that makes the practicing physician feel at home.

Surgical technique is described only in broad terms, and these descriptions are interspersed with considerations of surgical judgment and adjunctive medical management. Thus the internist or student gathers useful background material even while reading the small sections devoted to surgery. For the finer points of technique the authors have provided good bibliographic material.

It is an excellent book.
