"This book is an extraordinary textbook describing the biochemistry, physiology, cell biology, and molecular biology of hormones... The book is written primarily for graduate students in biochemistry and first year medical students of endocrinology, but it will be invaluable to clinicians wishing to understand the pathogenesis of endocrine disorders as well as researchers in the field of endocrinology... [The book displays] uniform style and consistently high quality and clarity among chapters with no repetition of material... This second edition comes 11 years after the first edition and is as up-to-date as textbooks can get. I would recommend the use of this textbook in all medical school courses in endocrinology and it should at least be available on the bookshelves of all medical school libraries, clinicians, and researchers of hormones."
Praise for the Second Edition, --Roy E. Weiss, MD, PhD, University of Chicago Medical Center, for DOODY'S PUBLISHING REVIEWS
"An invaluable single-volume summary of most that is known of hormones... This is an outstanding book, highly recommended."
