In the third edition of this very interesting and practical book the author has chiefly polished some of the rough edges and brought the context more completely up to date. He states that information was taken from 3,700 recent articles on pediatrics in addition to the 7,854 used in the second edition. The first edition was excellent in its practicality and ease of location of matter, but the author continues to make this material better and easier reading with each revision. As was stated about the other editions, no pediatrician or physician who works with children should be without this book.
