I suspect many healthcare professionals have heard of the Oxford Handbook Series which is excellent and very useful for front-line healthcare use. However, there is another series by the same publishers which may not have the same high profile but sometimes can be equally helpful-that is the Oxford Desk Reference series. As the title suggests, the books tend to be bulkier and this one is a hard back and is more of reference book rather than a portable handbook. I would consider this (rightly or wrongly) the bigger sibling of the Handbook equivalent. Irrespective of the series, this book is an excellent volume covering many aspects of endocrinology.
