Pleasingly the coverage in both endocrinology and diabetes is pretty comprehensive and is useful to be both junior and senior hospital staff as well as GPs. Even so, despite the excellent and good depth coverage, the book remains a portable and accessible volume. I used it in primary care both as a reference source, particularly trying to sort out a patient problem and reading for interest. Its readability and ability to get straight to the point were for me the
highlights...There are also topics covered that you may not expect, for example near the end there is an excellent chapter on obesity which impacts on a great deal of everyday practice. Again it covers the theory and practical in a 38readable yet summarised format.
All in all this is an excellent, well priced book which can be most useful in everyday clinical practice. * Dr Harry Brown *
