"Like the previous edition, this update is a comprehensive yet succinct resource on pediatric neoplasms. As a trainee, I love the quick-reference, outline-style format. I can easily flip to a page, read key facts, scan the differential, and check out the photos to see what I want to know. I use this while previewing and I take it home to review and study."
