This textbook is unique in that it is just as important to the practitioner as to the student from the standpoint of increasing the skill of both by a systematic method for diagnosis and interpretation of physical findings. It is also unusual for a small textbook of this type to cover so well the entire subject of pediatrics. The method of accurate history taking and physical examination, starting with the head and neck and continuing in detail through the various systems, is most effective and instructive. Symptoms referable to the various systems are also taken up in great detail. The coverage of growth and development and a section on health supervision are most interesting. This book is highly recommended for the teacher of pediatrics, the practitioner, and the medical student.
