From the reviews:
"The diagnosis and treatment of all major diseases of the anterior pituitary are covered in detail in this book, with an emphasis on the different types of pituitary adenomas. ... This book is addressed primarily to practicing endocrinologists, though it will be helpful for all physicians taking care of patients with pituitary diseases. ... is an excellent choice for endocrinologists and other physicians looking for a single book on pituitary disorders. It is a well written and comprehensive update on both diagnosis and treatment." (Ronald N Cohen, Doody's Review Service, July, 2008)
