This edition was prepared with the general practitioner in mind; hence, the subject matter is approached from a clinical rather than an experimental point of view. Several chapters have been deleted from the third edition; many have been changed considerably; and 20 new chapters have been added. The book is divided into five sections: general endocrinology, female endocrinology, hormonology, diagnostic procedures, and male endocrinology.

It is difficult to see why the author has entitled this book "Office Endocrinology," because there is little more to be added for a practical book on laboratory or hospital endocrinology. Furthermore, the author does not limit his material to endocrinology. Rubin tests, uterosalpingography, Huhner tests, trichomoniasis, and moniliasis are not a part of endocrinology, but they are included in the book.

The author does not believe that in functional or primary amenorrhea the gonadotropins can stimulate the subthreshold ovary to ovulation and corpus luteum formation.
