"It would be fair to call this collaboration of more than 150 international experts "the reference" in pediatric pulmonary medicine. For pediatric pulmonologists, the book achieves its intended goals extraordinarily well. For general pediatric practitioners, it comes across as very reachable. It is an essential resource for those in the practice of pediatric pulmonology." - Joel C Seidman, MD(William Beaumont Hospitals) Doody 4 stars
