Format: Paperback
"Essential Endocrinology and Diabetes" is a great book that gives good, concise explanations of endocrine disorders. Pictures of clinical presentations of patients with endocrine disorders, and summary boxes help give a focused approach to this challenging yet interesting field of specialty.

I do have ONE complaint: The dull red-grey colour scheme does not do this book justice! However, I have grown to love this book and its clear and neatly organized notes, its pictures, and the various case histories discussions.

Certainly one of the "must-haves" for medical students or physicians desiring a good grasp of endocrinology and diabetes principles.

Format: Paperback
A great choice if you need to study endocrinology and diabetes. It relates both basic science and clinical aspects of endocrinology/diabetes across the medical specialities with sufficient detail to make it very useful. It meshes well with other UG general medical texts such as Kumar & Clark, Davidsons or Axford and has more detail than the quick revision books. Each chapter has clear learning outcomes that give a flavour of what the text will discuss, and a succinct key point summary box to wrap up with. Clinical case histories combine learning points and questions, the answers to which are provided. There are lots of clear diagrams and pictures also.

Good 29 Jan. 2007
By Gema Souto Adeva - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was required, so I really did not personally select it. However it is a good textbook: very concise, good summary boxes and tables, useful figures, and nice case histories to illustrate the concepts.

Not Good 17 Feb. 2007
By M. Fahey - Published on
Format: Paperback
I had to purchase this book for an Endocrinology course I was taking; and from the very beginning, I did not enjoy reading it and found it very difficult to do so. Everything is so bland as far as the layout of the text, the coloring, the illustrations, etc. The paragraphs are very wordy and small print, so lots on one page. Another thing I don't like is that there are no review questions at the end of each chapter, nor are there any at the end of the book. There is also no glossary in the book, which makes it difficult when you want to look up a term that you don't know. It's also a UK version, so some of the spellings are a bit different and the punctuation isn't always used properly, or at least the way I have learned it, so the information doesn't "flow" very well as I read it. All in all, I do not recommend this book as a good learning tool for someone who is just starting to learn endocrinology.
