"…overall an enjoyable book to read, with many sections providing timely and useful information. The layout of the book is excellent—it was easy to read and the charts were concise and easy to follow. The author’s comments on type 1 diabetes are accurate and timely, and the sections on obesity and type 2 diabetes, which are on the increase in pediatric patients in the USA, provide apt information for practitioners caring for this population. …[This book] has value in many areas of pediatric endocrinology and will be a welcome addition to an office library."
