Read Mary Shomon's in-depth interview with Glenn Rothfeld, MD now

One of the best doctor-written books on thyroid problems. Dr. Rothfeld covers a broad spectrum of topics related to thyroid disease, and he offers practical, sensible, patient-oriented advice.

Because it covers so many topics in 300 pages, however, it isn't as in-depth as you may want in some sections, but you'll will find quite a bit of useful advice.
Particularly welcome are chapters on "Finding the Right Treatment," "What Do You Do When Nothing Seems to Work?" and "What Do You Do If You Want to Stop Treatment," which you will not find covered extensively in most other thyroid books.

Overall, I think it's a "must-have" book for your thyroid bookshelf!
