The fourth edition of this now classic textbook is the work of more than 300 authors, all of whom are well known experts in their fields. Not surprisingly, the content is sound and extremely well written. Each of the chapters is extensively supported by ample references.
The current edition consists of 194 chapters, about one third of which are completely new. The remainder of the textbook has been extensively rewritten and updated. The work is an excellent resource for endocrinologists with either basic or clinical interests. Almost every topic of interest to me was to be found somewhere within this large almost 20-lb textbook.
