The new edition is a magnificent textbook, covering pediatric pathology from top to bottom. It exceeds the first edition and surpasses the competition.

The text is in general very well written, with noteworthy clarity despite typos that escaped proofreaders' eyes. Numerous tables complement the descriptions, and extensive bibliographies follow each chapter. Many good gross photographs and photomicrographs enhance both volumes, although a few illustrations are dark and murky, failing to reveal the essential abnormality, even after careful study. We assume that they are black-and-white duplicates of original color transparencies. The next edition will have to have color plates.
