"The text is a pleasure to read. The authors adopt an informal conversational style for their discussion that evokes the comfortable air of a seminar course with a favorite professor. ...It invites and excites the reader to dig deeper into the many uncertain and unexplained areas of neuroendocrinology. It shows the reader that this is a field ready for exciting advances and a worthy arena in which to spend one’s career." --William J. Kovacs, The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas in BRAIN, BEHAVIOR AND IMMUNITY (July 2005) "This is an exceptional text that provides an up-to-date and comprehensive review of topical material in endocrinology, neuroscience, and behavior...The emphasize on research approaches, balanced with integration of findings from such approaches, enables the text to be used by a broad range of student populations. It would be suitable for use in an advanced undergraduate class, as well as by graduate and medial students, alike." -Cheryl Frye, University of Albany
