Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Monica C. Skarulis, MD (National Institutes of Health)
Description: This ninth edition text is a concise, definitive clinical resource that provides a comprehensive overview of the entire discipline. Two new editors joined the team to reorganize contents, add new chapters, and reassign nine existing chapters to new contributors. The result is an extensively revised text from the previous edition published in 1992.
Purpose: The goal of the current editors echoes the commitment of their predecessors since the first edition, published in 1950: to provide a condensed authoritative reference bridging the rapidly advancing knowledge acquired in basic science with clinical endocrinology. Today, the challenge looms larger and the goal is-more elusive, particularly in achieving a condensed product that is meaningful.
Audience: Clinicians and students will find this 1819-page, single volume text convenient to use for a quick overview of topics, which are extensively referenced and illustrated with many instructive figures.
Features: The editors have created a "supersaturated" text with calculated concessions in both basic science and clinical arenas. The ratio of basic science to clinical endocrinology varies throughout the chapters of the text. For example, the chapter on adrenal cortex covers diagnostic testing and treatment of disorders. In contrast, diabetes mellitus is divided evenly between molecular and clinical topics in a very brief and informative chapter on an enormous topic. The first section boasts updated topics in molecular endocrinology, genetics, and cell biology written by authorities in these fields. Two new chapters include discussion of the pathogenesis of endocrine neoplasm and the fundamentals of autoimmunity for endocrinologists.
Assessment: The strength of this textbook (comprehensive and condensed) arguably leads to its limitation. While most clinical pertinent topics are covered, they are dealt with tersely. Despite this, this is an important textbook that should be required reading for all students of endocrinology.

Preface

Williams Textbook of Endocrinology is designed to serve as a bridge between basic science and clinical endocrinology. The main objective is to provide a condensed and authoritative discussion of the management of clinical endocrinopathies, based upon the application of fundamental information obtained from chemical and physiologic investigations.

The ninth edition of Williams Textbook of Endocrinology has been extensively revised to reflect the rapid change in endocrine science. Molecular genetics, cell biology, and molecular biology are integrated throughout. New chapters have been added on the pathogenesis of endocrine tumors and on autoimmunity, and nine chapters have new authors.
