The 21st edition of Rudolph's Pediatrics is
an excellent, comprehensive textbook, which offers much to medical students,
residents, and clinicians caring for pediatric patients. Although it is a
lengthy work, subjects are treated with a depth and breadth that this reviewer
often finds lacking in abbreviated texts and Internet-based sources. The editors
and authors, many of whom are recognized as leaders in their fields, are congratulated
for a superb contribution to the library of pediatric references.
