For most neonatologists, previous editions of Klaus and Fanaroff's Care of the High-Risk Neonate represented their introduction to neonatal intensive care. I remember reading the first edition as a junior medical student on my pediatrics rotation, marveling at the simplicity, clarity, and applicability of the book to an evolving subspecialty. Like neonatology itself, the text has grown substantially over the years, from 358 to 632 pages, yet it retains the format and easy readability of the first edition.
