"This is a comprehensive book that has been extensively updated and enlarged from the first edition published five years ago. New chapters have been added on safe sleep, immunizations, neonatal nutrition, home technologies, and other topics. Other than the standard neonatal books, there is no comparable book for primary care providers. This should be a valuable contribution to the standard libraries of pediatricians and most hospitals that provide neonatal service."
