From the reviews:
"The audience is ... the pediatric surgeons of the world and their trainees. The authors clearly identify this group as their target audience. ... This is a nice update of the possible uses of minimally invasive surgery for the anomalies and conditions encountered in infants and children. ... this is the most current and comprehensive book for the broadest application of endoscopic techniques currently available to the pediatric surgeons of the world" (Robert M Arensman, Doody's Review Service, May, 2008)
