Review quote

"This pocket-sized book is logically organized in an organ-specific, then disease-specific manner. All areas of endocrinology, including pituitary, thyroid, adrenal, gonadal, bone, lipids, diabetes, and genetic syndromes are covered. The bulleted formatting and bold highlights simply but efficiently convey high-yield points. The selective use of graphs and tables is appropriate. Each chapter's reference section is quite useful." "This is likely the most comprehensive pocket-sized reference for endocrinology. With the rate at which medical knowledge and research is rapidly expanding, this edition is a welcome and necessary update."
