The authors of this text are, indeed, to be commended for a concise yet all-inclusive presentation of thyroid disease. They have masterfully organized the material so that the physiological, biochemical, and anatomical alterations of thyroid function are excellently correlated with the clinical findings described.

The figures and illustrations have been thoughtfully chosen and carefully prepared to convey to the reader the classical examples of the functional, pathological, or clinical abnormality being emphasized.

The authors have been tireless in their review of the literature and in the compilation of the text's bibliography, of which there are ten parts. This book would be a valuable asset to any physician's library.
