Kleinberg, MD, NYU Department of Medicine, Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism, New York, USA

Praise for the Second Edition:

"…it is an essential and important textbook for practicing endocrinologists and endocrine scientists, trainees in endocrinology, and those working with endocrinologists in the care of patients with pituitary disease, including pediatricians, surgeons, radiologists, oncologists, and endocrine biochemists. It is a fitting tribute, indeed, to the gland that represents the "conductor of the endocrine orchestra." — The New England Journal of Medicine
