In this handsome volume the authors have presented an excellent description of clinical endocrinology. While anatomical and physiological principles are adequately discussed, the greatest emphasis is placed upon clinical features of disease—its diagnosis, manifestations, and treatment. The book is divided into twelve sections: anterior pituitary, posterior pituitary, thyroid, adrenal cortex, adrenal medulla, ovaries, placenta, testes, pancreas, parathyroids, obesity, and a section on methods and materials.
The discussions are appropriately detailed and entertaining. This is a superior text for students and practitioner alike. The simplicity of its organization makes it a source of ready reference, while its clarity and excellence of format make it a pleasure to read.
