Review quote

"This book is written in a concise, accessible style that will appeal to busy residents and clinicians who always need a quick and easy to use summary of relevant issues...It...cover[s] a wide range of acute and chronic problems in children. Topics that usually don't get much attention in handbooks, such as ethics, child protection, public health issues, and communication, are also discussed. Common pediatric procedures, community health, and epidemiology are well covered."--Doody's "This book is written in a concise, accessible style that will appeal to busy residents and clinicians who always need a quick and easy to use summary of relevant issues...It...cover[s] a wide range of acute and chronic problems in children.
