This book is divided into sections on the anterior pituitary, posterior pituitary, thyroid, adrenal cortex, adrenal medulla, ovaries, placenta, testes, pancreas, parathyroids, obesity, and methods and materials. The chapters in each section deal with the embryology, anatomy, physiology, and disorders of the various glands. This book reflects the increase in endocrine knowledge since its first edition, particularly in the fields of thyroid and adrenal physiology, pathology, and therapy. The authors have done an extensive and commendable job of revising and, in some instances, rewriting chapters. They discus in common-sense terms the male climacteric, the existence of which is denied by some authors. The term may be unfortunate, but few experienced observers will deny that some aging men exhibit the clinical findings mentioned by these authors. Their condition is greatly alleviated by the administration of androgens.
