The "Compleat Pediatrician" fills the same admirable purpose in this edition that it has in three earlier ones; it has no peer as a "bedside guidebook" for student and practitioner alike.
Many revisions have been made, all eminently practical and all designed to serve as stimulating reminders of a broader coverage of medical knowledge contained in larger, more conventional textbooks.
Only by a brief study of the volume can one appreciate its great usefulness; the division of subjects follows a logical order, and any one using the volume for the purpose intended will find it an invaluable aid. Brief descriptions and evaluations of newer laboratory procedures should be most helpful to busy practitioners.
This book should be on the desk or in the kit of any physician who deals with infants and children.
