"The Year Book of Endocrinology" continues to be one of the best of this series. This "Year Book," with many of its literary brothers, has become essential reading for general physicians or internists who see the average run of patients rather than only patients in a particular branch of a specialty. In addition, it will appeal to endocrinologists for the interesting and useful editorial commentary. This volume is embellished by two excellent essays, one by Albright and Larson, on "Thyroid Hormone Transport," and one on "Recent Developments in Glucagon," by Elrick. This year the thyroid and adrenals get a large share of the space, reflecting the very great activity of research in these fields. A fine example from a useful series.
