"This is an iconic book in neonatology. Its reappearance after an 11-year absence is very welcome, indeed. Although not as inclusive as the major neonatal textbooks, it continues to be innovative in the presentation of material and the introduction of new subjects, such as the role of networks in providing evidence-based data. This book should be part of every neonatal library and this edition will find a place on my shelf next to the previous five." - Jay P. Goldsmith, MD(Tulane University School of Medicine) Doody 5 stars!
