From the reviews:
"This book covers the surgical problems of children from sternal notch to diaphragm. ... This is a well-written book at a level that should be understandable to students, residents, fellows, and experienced pediatric surgeons. ... This is a good, current, well-illustrated and well-referenced book on almost all of the thoracic problems of childhood that are likely to come to the attention of a pediatric surgeon. Even the most experienced among us will find interesting, new, and relevant information within its covers." (Robert M Arensman, Doody's Review Service, October, 2009)
