This excellent book has been completely revised in its sixth edition. The subject matter is in agreement with the current thoughts in pediatrics. The writers have reserved all of their illustrations for the chapters on methods of procedures and formulas and recipes. These chapters are not only well augmented by excellent photographs and drawings which amplify the explanation of technical procedures, but they contain an abundance of practical information for the student and the practitioner alike. The book will still rank as one of the leading pediatric texts and fully justifies its sixth revision.
