This volume is superbly written by excellently qualified authors. It is compact and presents in almost unique fashion the best of current information on the development of children from birth to maturity. The format is attractive; the type readable; the illustrations, plates, charts, graphs, and tables accurate, clear, appropriately selected, and adequate in number. The authors are careful to present both sides of controversial questions. The bibliography appended to each chapter is unusually complete. This is an interesting and valuable textbook. It is almost a "must" for every physician in pediatric practice. It should be invaluable to pediatric house officers and residents, to all candidates for American board examinations, and for every professional worker in the field of child health.
