This book, edited by Helen M. Wallace, MD, MPH, and her associates Gordon Green, MD, MPH, Kenneth Jaros, MSW, PhD, Lisa Paine, CNM, DrPH, and Mary Story, RD, PhD, is an ambitious attempt to capture a formidable amount of information applicable to families in a readable, comprehensive text. In the main the editors appear to have succeeded with only a few shortfalls. Then again, any text featuring contributions from such distinguished faculty as Drs Richard D. Krugman, Philip R. Lee, and Barbara Starfield, would be expected to be excellent.
