All of the difficulties inherent in writing a text outside of one's specialty are shown in this book. A great deal of useful information is hidden in it, but there are many errors. The problems seen by the reproductive endocrinologist are not given proper priority, and the emphasis is wrongly placed. For example, the chapter on thyroid disease is excellent from the standpoint of thyroid anatomy, physiology, and dysfunction; however it would be more appropriate to gynecologic and obstetric endocrinology if some discussion of menstrual dysfunction were included. The defects in steroidogenesis seen in congenital adrenal hyperplasia are thoroughly covered.
