The editors of this new, comprehensive pediatric textbook assert in their preface that “[m]uch of the practical information essential to the delivery of appropriate care is not available in textbooks.” They state further, “Our goal in the creation and organization of this text has been to provide practical information in an easily accessible, learner-friendly format.” In the foreword Robert J. Haggerty, MD, also states, “The goal. . . . is to help generalists who practice in the community and in academic centers to deliver effective care to children and to serve those who teach children’s health care.” This review will attempt to evaluate how effectively this goal is met.
