    The American Society for Bone and Mineral Research is pleased to announce the publication of the 7th edition of its Primer on the Metabolic Bone Diseases and Disorders of Mineral Metabolism.

    Of the sixth edition, customers have commented:

    I highly recommend this book. This book divided into several short chapters provides concise reviews on basic science and clinical diseases of bone. The book is well written and has many useful tables. This book is the official primer published by the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research. It is written by many internationally known scientists in the field of bone and mineral research. It is a book that belongs to any physician caring for patients with bone diseases not limited to osteoporosis.”
