In his preface the author states: "This survey of clinical pediatrics is not intended to replace the excellent large textbooks that are now available. It is rather designed to help the student and practitioner focus on the high lights and relationships of pediatrics." Study of the book shows that the author has done this job well in that he has taken the material of the usual textbook and boiled it down to about 20% of its original length. The volume covers the entire field of pediatrics. The presentations and discussions are brief, most of them in outline form. There are 34 tables dealing with such subjects as poisons, electrolyte solutions, formulas, exanthems, anemias, and hemorrhagic disorders. An effort has been made to present recent advances and, where there is controversy, the author has attempted to give the majority opinion. In some instances there may be some disagreement with the conclusions
