It is always a delight when something great becomes even better. Such is the case with the second edition of David Taylor's textbook on pediatric ophthalmology. The new edition, at 1138 pages, is practically 50% larger than its predecessor, yet it is still an easy-to-handle 1-volume book. Virtually every chapter has been extensively rewritten, and the book is replete with high-quality (predominantly color) photographs and tables. In addition, several new chapters have been included, which significantly enhances the book.
