The academic credentials of the book are impeccable; who better to act as the editor of a book on the metabolic syndrome X than its discoverer. Undoubtedly, this is a comprehensive treatise that summarizes the current understanding of this disease.

Despite being a multi-authored book, a coherent and unitary message comes across. This reference work reflects the combined efforts of 33 international experts in the field. The book is characterized by a European-American balance with around 40% of the contributors working in Europe and the rest of researchers belonging to the USA and Canada.

Taking advantage of their unique insight into the field, authors have avoided noncritical summaries of the topics but rather have presented their point of view, thereby encouraging controversy and benefitting a rapidly moving and changing field ofinquiry.
