"Drs. Joffe and Levitt have assembled an enormously valuable book. Its value for clinicians is self-evident, and clinician-reseachers cannot do without it."-- "Arthur J. Prange Jr., M.D., From the Foreword"
"Drs. Joffe and Levitt's "The Thyroid Axis and Psychiatric Illness" will serve as a key reference work for both clinical and basic researchers with interests in the thyroid and its relevance to behavior and behavioral pathology. Among the many strengths of this volume is its depth of coverage, as evidenced by its extensive and up-to-date referencing, which is not likely to be duplicated for many years to come. Its breadth of coverage is perhaps even more impressive. In the clinical chapters, this breadth provides the context from which to judge of the robustness and specificity of thyroid-related findings heretofore widely dispersed among journal articles, chapters, and conference proceedings. In the basic science chapters, this breadth gives some indication of the many mechanisms, from the molecular to the environmental, which may be relevant to the role of the thyroid axis in maintaining behavioral homeostasis."-- "Mark S. Bauer, M.D., Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior, Brown University, Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Providence, Rhode Island"
