Essential Endocrinology clearly explains the molecular and physiological aspects of endocrinology and shows how knowledge of the fundamentals informs the understanding of endocrine diseases and their management. The distinguished author team has ensured that all topics are presented in a straightforward, accessible manner for ease of understanding. Each of the major endocrine systems is covered, with careful attention to the integration of basic medical science with clinical endocrine practice. Case studies are incorporated to give further value as a learning resource.


  • A completely revised Chapter 2, reflecting both established and newer molecular mechanisms of hormone action.
  • Opening chapters clearly describing the synthesis and secretion of hormones and the key topic of endocrine homeostasis.
  • One entirely new appendix which gives a simple formula for working out steroid structures, thereby alleviating the need to learn by rote this difficult section of endocrinology.
  • Two revised appendices covering techniques for measurement of hormones and classical experiments to characterise the interaction of hormones with their receptors.
  • Clear, explanatory line diagrams throughout depicting the underlying concepts of the text.

Review:

"Excellent diagrams and integrated case reports make this an excellent base of knowledge for second year and beyond. Combined with a modest price tag at almost half that of some of the recommended course texts (and the boon of having an index that sends you to the correct page never mind the correct chapter) Essential Endocrinology is a must buy."

Surgo: Glasgow University Medical Journal

"Each accessible chapter is preceded by a tidy summary of the topic before plunging into the unknown. This book is useful at any stage of the course and smells quite nice too."

Black Bag, Bristol Medical School Gazette

On earlier editions:

"The book is ideal for students with little or no previous knowledge of endocrinology." ASLIB Book Guide

"Good use of clinical examples in the text make this book appealing to all student years." St Thomas' Medical Gazette

"The manageable chunks of text, interspersed with diagrams and photographs, made the book very readable and even interesting - a rare feature of many older textbooks. If you want/need a book to supplement your course notes then this is the one to get." Murmur, Cambridge University Medical Gazette

Published Reviews of the 4th Edition

"A very didactic book, covering the major fields of endocrinology.

.It provides essential knowledge for medical students, presenting also updated diagnostic means."

Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism, vol.15, no.6, 2002

Published Reviews of the 4th Edition

"It is logical set out in chapters dedicated to each "system" in turn.Each is summarised which aids the digestion of what can be a rather detailed text.

.I would recommend this as a book to turn to if you want to expand on material from lectures."

Northwing, vol.67. no.2, Autumn/Winter 2002
