"The book thus succeeds in presenting a comprehensive overview of endocrinology for students of health sciences and of clinical endocrinology. It is a concise guide as well as a revision aid. Practicing clinicians also will enjoy dipping into the book from time to time for refreshing knowledge." (J.Trop.Ped, 2011)
