"This is a monumental five volume set- to the best of my knowledge, the first of its kind- written by a large team of experts. This set belongs in every academic medical library. The last two volumes are of special interest to endocrinologists, psychologists and psychiatrists, the first two volumes more to zoologists. The editors, contributors and the publisher are to be commended for this up-to-date, well written and well referenced work."
- Zvi Laron, THE JOURNAL OF ENDOCRINE GENETICS, 2004
