Osteoporosis is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality amongst the elderly. The rationale for The Osteoporosis Primer is to provide an introductory text that relates the clinical presentation of osteoporosis to its molecular biochemical basis. The text has been organised into four sections that deal with the molecular/cellular components of bone, the development of peak bone mass, the pathophysiology of aging bone and, finally, how all of these relate to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis. The international team of authors includes many leading clinicians and scientists who have provided the reader with a concise, yet comprehensive, synopsis of bone development and skeletal homeostasis. This will be an essential introduction for individuals working on osteoporosis including students and doctors considering a career related to metabolic bone disease, physicians in general practice, geriatricians, rheumatologists, and endocrinologists.

'I really enjoyed tying together the cell biology and the basis of the current treatments and potential therapeutic interventions. I found that I knew a lot more about bone cell physiology, bone turnover and cell signalling by the end of the section. ... The book succeeds as an introductory text on metabolic bone disease and provides insight into the complexity of the subject without becoming overwhelming.' Gerontology
'A clearly written and updated text ... on a topic of increasing interest.' Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism
'This is a concise yet comprehensive synopsis of bone developments and skeletal homeostasis.' Aslib Book Guide
