  • "This book fills an important gap with respect to the kind of information available in most endocrinology texts. It provides crucial information on molecular aspects of endocrinology not available in most endocrinology textbooks (for example the chapter on 'Receptor Regulation' is a sorely needed but usually ignored component of endocrine texts)."
    --CLIFF H. SUMMERS, University of South Dakota
