"This is a comprehensive review of all pediatric diseases divided into chapters related to systems such as the kidneys, circulatory system and respiratory system, etc. The book has already had a major focus on cardiovascular disease and that remains one of the book's strengths. It is well indexed and is easy to read. This book remains one of the giants in pediatric information with outstanding authors and excellent text. It should be a part of every pediatric library. This new edition has added new high standards particularly in the areas of imaging and additional biologic information which has become available since the previous edition." "4 Stars!"
