This new edition is a timely and much-needed addition to the current array of available resources for the pediatric neurologist and for trainees and practitioners in pediatric neurology and related disciplines. It retains the strengths of the second edition, and in addition, it contains definitive, up-to-date chapters on such burgeoning fields of knowledge as genetics, sleep disorders, taste and smell, and stroke in children. It has an innovative chapter on "The Internet and Its Resources for the Child Neurologist" and another listing of resources, such as support groups for various diseases and sources of practice parameters. It is a 2-volume,10-pound, self-contained library of pediatric neurology that should be on the shelf of everyone interested in the discipline.
