    Text Book Review

    Textbook: Principles of Bone Biology
    Editors: John Bilezikian, Lawrence Raisz, John Martin
    Published: 2008 (3rd Edition)
    Organization: Two volumes 1942 pages consisting of 4 major parts and 90 chapters

    Introduction:
    Principles of Bone Biology is a comprehensive text which includes in-depth analysis of topics ranging from basic cell biology and biochemistry, the complex interactions of bone hemostasis, principals behind metabolic bone diseases including their treatment, and research methods. The list of chapter authors includes many of the most prominent and well published names in the field. As the third edition (previous edition was published in 2002) the chapters have been extensively updated especially in the therapeutics portion.

    Organization:
    The four major sections are 1) Basic Principles 2) Molecular Mechanisms of Metabolic Bone Disease 3)Pharmacological Mechanisms of Therapeutics and 4) Methods in Bone Research. Each section is broken up into subsections that follow a logical order and each chapter is about 15 to 25 pages in length. There is extensive use of graphs, tables and pictures (black and white) that help organize and summarize the content as well as references. Many of the chapters conclude with the authors's remarks and/ or future direction which helpful to the reader to obtain the salient points or understand where the future growth in this field will be.

    Opinion:
    Principles of Bone Biology is an excellent reference source on a topic that receives relatively little coverage in the standard internal medicine or orthopedic textbooks. The extensive breath and depth contained in this textbook makes it a valuable resource for those who do research in this area as a way to obtain succinct information and background for their own research. For practitioners who have a focus in treating patients with metabolic bone disease this text can provide greater background on the basics of bone biology as well as the basis of treatment. Finally, this book would be an excellent addition to any medical library as an excellent go to book for any question on bone biology.
