This new book is a welcome addition to the field of child abuse. It is a must-read for anyone specializing in the field of intentional injury and is a reader-friendly and valuable reference for clinicians who assess and treat children with fractures. The table of contents is detailed, allowing readers to quickly find and investigate topics of interest. If that is insufficient, a well-organized index is likewise available at the back of the text. The layout is exceptionally appealing, with excellent subheadings throughout the chapters. Approximately 50% of the 209 pages present images that include excellent radiographs of accidental and nonaccidental injuries, along with arrows directing the reader to the highlighted abnormalities.
