Review:

"This book provides a concise discussion of endocrine physiology. First, there is a general discussion of hormone action. Next, individual chapters are devoted to each hormone system. Finally, there is a discussion of endocrine aspects of energy and electrolyte balance....This easy-to-read and concise discussion of endocrine physiology is particularly well suited for medical students with an interest in endocrinology and for students studying for the Step 1 USMLE examination. 3 Stars."-- Doody's Review Service ( Doody's 2006-09-22)
