Editorial Reviews

Reviewer: Carol Touma, M.D.(University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: The sixth edition of this comprehensive book more fully incorporates pediatric endocrinology and adds new chapters as it reviews basic and clinical endocrinology and details new information on many endocrine disorders. The previous edition was published in 2006.
Purpose: The focus is on the clinical presentation of disease with an emphasis on the multihormonal integration of endocrine function. With the ever-increasing knowledge of the endocrine system, this integrative textbook is needed and appreciated. It superbly meets its goals.
Audience: This book targets a wide audience including students, clinicians and researchers in endocrinology. The senior editors are renowned researchers and clinicians in the field.
Features: In addition to more complete coverage of pediatric topics, this book also has new chapters on subjects such as lipodystrophy syndromes and lipoprotein metabolism, which are gaining more interest in the field. Some of the best aspects of the book are that it is very up to date, provides basic and clinical aspects of the span of endocrinologic disease processes, is concisely confined in two volumes, and targets a broad audience. A unique feature is the section of color plates at the front of volume 1, which portray in vivid color the black-and-white versions throughout the book. This edition also includes access to a web site with additional resources.
Assessment: This is a superb resource for the study of endocrinology and to refer to in the clinic setting. This new edition better integrates pediatric endocrinology into a concise, two-volume version with a companion web site, thus making it the ideal research and clinical tool.
