"This well-written, relatively concise, and current book will find a home on the shelves of many nephrologists and endocrinologists. Because it is so readable, it should be useful for students, experts, and those in between. I know I will consult my copy on a frequent basis — an unusual event in this era of online material."
-- As reviewed in N Engl J Med 2009; 361: 832

"All in all, this is a solid book that provides substantial up-todate information on endocrine aspects of the kidney. I will be glad to pull it down from my shelf rather than one of the true heavyweights to which I would previously have gone for this kind of reading."
-- Kidney International (2009)

“Written by multidisciplinary experts from several countries, this book is divided into 2 parts and 7 sections. A very useful volume. Each chapter is richly referenced.”
-- Zvi Laron, Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews
