The appearance of this fourth edition of a book that made its first appearance less than six years ago is ample evidence of its popularity among Spanish readers. In general, the book compares favorably with the clinical endocrinological textbooks available in English, German, French, and Italian, but the arrangement of the material is somewhat unorthodox, in that anatomic consideration of all the glands is followed by a discussion of their hormones, and this in turn is followed by a discussion of specific endocrinopathies. Such an arrangement detracts from the orderly correlation of the subject matter. The author writes in a clear and succinct manner, and the material presented is sound and in accord with modern concepts in this field. The typography is good and the illustrations well chosen. The book can be recommended to the Spanish-reading physician who desires a reference book with adequate and sound coverage of this subject.
