Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This book presents a balanced view of the controversies surrounding the metabolic syndrome and supplies the reader with a detailed account of the key issues that divide the various camps. . is an admirable collection of scientifically focused and up-to-date views of the current thinking on the metabolic syndrome. It can be recommended for scientists working in this field as well as for clinicians who wish to gain a deeper understanding of this complex syndrome." (Arne Astrup, The New England Journal of Medicine, July, 2008)"This book covers three major perspective of the metabolic syndrome . . this book is written for an endocrinology audience and anyone who has a strong interest in the link between the basic science of insulin resistance and the clinical manifestations of the metabolic syndrome. Practitioners will find useful information about the underlying mechanisms of the disease as well as an overview of treatment approaches. . This is a high quality review of insulin resistance targeted at endocrinologists and basic scientists." (Matthew J. Sorrentino, Doody's Review Service, November, 2008)
