The volume that we all called Stanbury has become a four-volume text that we call Scriver, and it is the bible of molecular medicine. The book began as a compendium of inborn errors of metabolism, an inherited basis of metabolic disease. With the sixth edition, the new team began the transformation that was formalized in the seventh by the addition of "molecular" to the title and has continued with the eighth. Anything that can be understood on a molecular basis is now fair game.
