The textbook, by itself, would probably not sway me from continuing to use Forfar's as my first-line reference, because I find it easier to navigate, aqnd just as authoritative. The webpage, howeer, was susch a fantastic and individuals at any stage in their career. The paediatric reference book has gone to the next level." Seminars in Fetal & Neonatal Medicine, October 2012 ?"This widely respected, comprehensive, and now online synthesis of clinical pediatrics continues as the standard resource in this discipline.
