Although most medical books rely on the printed word, it should come as no surprise in this televisual age to see the graphic medium become the message. Clinical endocrinology is ideally suited to visual display—as proved in this beautifully illustrated text that would grace any coffee table. The editors have skillfully joined some 20 chapters, compiled by 22 well-known contributors (18 British and 4 American), into a book that covers the physiology and malfunction of the human endocrine system. Drawing heavily on recent advances in biochemistry and neuroendocrinology, the book emphasizes mechanisms and physiologic principles graphically displayed to assist understanding.
