James Peinkofer's Silenced Angels is the only book in print dealing with every aspect of shaken baby syndrome (SBS). Unfortunately, in an attempt to create a comprehensive resource on the subject, a potpourri of information is presented in a somewhat random format without thought to the needs of the individual reader. For example, in the chapter "Procedures and Tests," fairly detailed medical information is presented about computed tomography juxtaposed with information more useful to families and patients' advocates, such as whether parents and siblings are allowed in the room during the procedure.
