Review quote

Praise for previous editions: "This new and cohesive offering for beginning medical students has a number of important attributes--brevity, accuracy, readability, minimal use of jargon, an absence of excessive enthusiasm for eponyms.... [This book] is an excellent and scholarly introduction to endocrinology...I give it the highest marks over competing textbooks because of its systematic, concise, and accurate treatment of all major concepts." --The New England Journal of Medicine"It is generously illustrated by good-quality black and white drawings which have been well-chosen to complement the text. The standard of writing is generally very good and I found it easy to read. I would have no hesitation in recommending this book, not only to students, but also to postgraduates--clinical and non-clinical--who want an accessible and up-to-date whistle-stop tour of endocrinology." --The Endocrinologist"The current research emphasis on molecular endocrinology is reflected appropriately in the revision and expansion of several sections. The expertise of the contributors in their field is evident throughout." --Experimental Physiologyshow more
