This little book fills a long-felt need for a concise work on this very basic and important subject. Apparently the successful teaching of growth and development has been one of the weak links in pediatric education.
Though this is a brief treatise on a broad subject, it should serve well the medical student, the intern, the resident, and even the busy practitioner.
The following chapters are covered in an interesting and adequate manner: Heredity and Environmental Factors in Growth and Development; Fetal Growth and Development; Normal Physical Measurements; Behavioral Development; Organ Development; Osseous Development; Role of the Endocrine Glands in Normal Growth and Development; Energy Metabolism; Nutrition in Normal Growth, and An Outline of Abnormal Growth.
