The newest edition of this venerable, all-purpose pediatric textbook appears, as usual, about 3 to 4 years after the last. Also, as usual, Nelson has grown: it is 200 pages longer and has a third more contributors than the previous edition (325 compared with 244). The binding is now plasticized and thus presumably is more resistant to accidents such as spilled coffee! The second print color, used to highlight headings, graphs, boxes, and illustrations, has been changed from a pleasant green to pale mauve.
