In a review of the first edition of this book several years ago it was suggested that this was probably the best brief text on endocrinology yet produced. The second edition seems to maintain the same position. Endocrinology is a complex subject in a state of rapid flux. It is practically impossible to cover all its aspects authoritatively or adequately. But a vast amount of useful information is assembled here between two covers, and the illustrations and tables are especially valuable. For the clinician good summaries of anatomic and physiologic observations not readily accessible in most textbooks are assembled. There are some controversial points, especially in connection with current work on pituitary extract and sex hormones, but on the whole this book represents a sound appraisal of the subject.
