In 2001 Graves' Disease: A Practical Guide described the causes, diagnosis, treatment and disease course of Graves' disease and other hyperthyroid disorders, such as toxic multinodular goiter, thyroiditis, resistance to thyroid hormone, and hyperthyroidism caused by medications and genetic mutations.

Additional sections describe special circumstances such as hyperthyroidism in pregnancy and in children and transient hyperthyroidism in the newborn.
