After about 20 years from its first publication, at the end of last February, a third edition of the book initially entitled Sports Endocrinology was launched by Springer, this time both the two editors and the title being the same as on the occasion of the second appearance.
In their brief preface, the two editors mention that no more than five years have passed from the second edition to the current one. An unusually short period for two successive editions of such a voluminous scientific book in our opinion, which shows both the interest of the topic and the rapid knowledge accumulation in the field. The last reason represents in fact the plausible explanation that among others, the recently released book contains 40 extra pages and two more chapters than the precedent one; 30 instead of 28.
