I welcomed the arrival of the 10th edition of Williams
Textbook of Endocrinology as an old friend now more handsome and engaging
than ever, with illustrious new editors and a number of new chapters. But
is the textbook a little formal and old-fashioned considering the times?
In fact, every chapter has been significantly updated, as demonstrated
by the increased number of references, more than 2000 in one chapter. "Williams 10" is more complete and up-to-date than ever.
