Praise for the first edition:
"...interesting, comprehensive and up-to-date: each chapter has something new and important to say...Whichever direction one chooses to approach this monumental work I predict it will be worthwhile"
-JOURNAL OF BONE AND JOINT SURGERY
"...a textbook focused solely on this condition and encompassing this diversity of research has been lacking. This book does a terrific job of filling the gap. It contains 70 chapters grouped in six sections...All the chapters are authoritative and include up-to-date references...Osteoporosis is quite comprehensive; indeed, topics that typically receive brief treatment elsewhere (osteoporosis in minority groups and in men) receive entire chapters here...The book also covers relevant methodologic concepts, no doubt reflecting the editors desire to make the material accessible to readers with other primary research interests."
-THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE
Praise for the second edition:
"...well edited and the chapters are clearly cross-referenced...a helpful reference for any scientist or clinician with an interest in the field."
