This book, written by recognized international experts in the field, covers a wide range of important topics in pediatric pulmonary medicine. The challenge for the editors was to appropriately balance both basic and clinical aspects of this heterogeneous group of pulmonary diseases and, also, to appeal to a broad audience of both scientists and clinicians. Building on the contributions of 128 authors, they have done an excellent job of assembling a book with a uniform writing style and approach.
