SIDS, by Toke Hoppenbrouwers, PhD, a neurophysiologist, and Joan Hodgman, MD, a neonatologist from the University of Southern California (Los Angeles), was written for a broad audience including parents who have lost children to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), their family and friends, and physicians and other professionals who come in contact with these families. There is much to like in this softcover book, which in 106 easy-to-read pages outlines much of what is and is not known about the entity of SIDS.
