Principles of Gender-Specific Medicine, edited
by Marianne Legato, is an important and practical medical textbook in its
first edition. The 12 section editors and 204 chapter authors are well-known
clinicians from North America, Europe, and Asia who have vast experience in
their fields. The section editors include John P. Bilezikian, William Byne,
Ann M. Coulston, Kevin C. Fleming, Scott M. Hammer, Robyn G. Karlstadt, Robert
G. Lahita, George M. Lazarus, Lauri Romanzi, Janice B. Schwartz, Amy Tiersten,
and David R. Trawick. Their contributions and the editor’s skill result
in a textbook that addresses an important gap in any library or personal collection
of medical texts.
