"This book offers a `comprehensive, easy-to-follow, organized approach' to diagnosis and management. ... This is a high-quality offering in an area that very much needs clarity and logic. It will occupy a unique niche in the endocrinology literature and should find a home on the shelves of primary care practitioners as well as specialists."
