The first edition of this book was generally accepted as the most authoritative description of growth, especially of its intellectual aspects, during the first three years of life.
The second edition includes all the clinical material of the first and gives additional observations on blindness, deafness, low grade amentia, prematurity and convulsive disorders and their adoption, with a new chapter on developmental pediatrics.
As in all the authors' previous writings, this book has strong and clear formulations, which can be easily understood and applied in the clinic or the physician's office.
