I welcomed the arrival of the 10th edition of Williams Textbook of Endocrinology as an old friend now more handsome and engaging than ever, with illustrious new editors and a number of new chapters. But is the textbook a little formal and old-fashioned considering the times?

In fact, every chapter has been significantly updated, as demonstrated by the increased number of references, more than 2000 in one chapter. "Williams 10" is more complete and up-to-date than ever.
