Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Jessica Hwang, MD (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: Following the classic organization of Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, this book appeals to those interested in the subspecialty of endocrinology. The previous edition was published in 2010.
Purpose: This is a concise, focused compilation of material from the endocrinology chapters of Harrison's. The author aims to integrate pathophysiology with clinical management, highlighting up-to-date advances in treatment options, molecular biology, or genetic advances along the way.
Audience: Aside from endocrinologists, this book also is useful for other healthcare providers, such as primary care physicians, students, nurses, residents, or fellows. The contributing authors are internationally recognized authorities in their respective fields.
Features: The book is divided into sections reflecting the physiological roots of endocrinology — adrenal/thyroid, reproductive, DM/obesity/dyslipidemia, bone/calcium, and multiple endocrine disorders. The figures and tables are appropriate and efficiently convey high-yield concepts and algorithms. However, reproductive endocrinology accounts for a disproportionate amount of the book (equal to the entire combined section on pituitary/thyroid/adrenals), and the section on gynecologic malignancies does not seem like a good fit for this book.
Assessment: This is similar in scope to Greenspan's Basic and Clinical Endocrinology, 9th edition, Gardner and Shoback (McGraw-Hill, 2011). Either of these books would provide a solid foundation in endocrinology.
