The science of neonatal respiration was spawned and nurtured to its current vigorous growth within the professional life spans of many current investigators, none of whom has contributed more to the study of developmental respiratory physiology than the author of this cogent book, L. B. Strang. The valuable longitudinal perspective afforded by a veteran and keen observer of a specialty science is often lost in the multiauthored or edited textbooks circulating today. That Dr Strang has decided to write a treatise on such a large and dynamic field as neonatal respiration is thus warmly welcomed by fellow students of the physiology of the newborn.
This is an excellent book. First of all, it is reassuring to note that it is possible, at some cost no doubt, to remain sufficiently abreast of all major subsets of one's specialty to write concise, orderly, lucid, well-illustrated, and well-referenced topical chapters that are suitable
