Published Reviews

    "An excellent and very readable resource…I would recommend it to anyone looking to add a neonatal textbook to either their own personal or unit libraries." -Archives of Disease in Childhood, review of the previous edition

    "With the publication of this ninth edition (previous edition in 2005) of this venerable book, the torch has been passed to new editors, Drs. Gleason and Devaskar, who have made the new edition of this book more practical and clinically oriented. One of four major books in neonatology, originally published by a pediatrician in 1960, it has been modernized to reflect the needs of practitioners at all levels in this field of neonatal care including trainees, nurses, advanced practice nurses, respiratory therapists, and physicians.

    This is a comprehensive review of all aspects of neonatal care that serves as a reference for both common and unusual conditions. The editors and their contributors are nationally and internationally known authorities in the field." - Doody’s review service rating: 4 Stars!
