Review from previous edition Review from a previous edition: The work of Wass and Stewart should be in every medical library and I recommend that every endocrinologists gets a copy.
Review from a previous edition: For someone who is fond of Endocrinology was a pleasure to open this book. It is a classic textbook in endocrinology and diabetes, as well as being contemporary in language, content and illustrations. I recommend the book to anyone who needs a large and updated textbook of endocrinology and diabetes.
