Rejoice! McMillan and Oski, along with a new colleague, Stockman, at the State University of New York, Upstate Medical Center at Syracuse, have produced a second catalog of tips, tricks, traps, and techniques to titillate the pediatrician's mind. This is not a second edition, but an entirely new book with organization of chapters and format being the only similar features. This engaging work is not as good as the first Catalog, but it should be read and enjoyed by most physicians who care for children. Some may consider it to be frivolous or even cheaply contrived. If you think that reading JAMA or Medical Economics is an utter waste of time, then forget this book. Not that they are alike, but the Catalog does contain lighthearted passages and some material that is worthless and, in rare instances, even untrue.

What we have here are 21 chapters devoted to such topics
