Practitioners of medicine should welcome this authoritatively written, terse and practical summary of endocrinology. It is a precise survey of modern endocrinology that will be invaluable for purposes of orientation. While the author makes no pretense of writing a complete textbook on the subject, he has succeeded in presenting an unusual amount of well correlated data in a most lucid manner. Useless and confusing theoretical detail has been omitted from the book and the work reflects the author's rich practical and scientific background. The major endocrine syndromes of the thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary, adrenals, gonads and pancreas are discussed with masterful brevity. The work merits a place in the library of every practicing physician.
