This is a good book. The authors were successful in achieving their purpose of writing a condensed and practical clinical book on endocrinology in just over 200 pages. The material is succinctly presented, controversial ideas having been eliminated to a great extent or discussed only briefly. Well established facts are dogmatically and clearly discussed. The book is not, nor was it intended to be, an encyclopedia on the subject of endocrinology. This may unjustly be advanced as a criticism, but the authors definitely state their purpose in the preface. They wrote a very useful book for students and practicing physicians, and it is to be recommended to them.
