Book Reviews

"I have been board certified in neonatology for over 30 years and this is by far the best done and most extensive collection of newborn images I have seen. With over 600 clear color images this text gives a complete picture of the newborn from important fetal ultrasound findings through the entire newborn course, from head to foot. Fifty pages on the eyes alone!... I think this reference is so complete it should replace “Google” for the evaluation of the newborn with an unusual physical finding."

"This text is an excellent collection of photographs of a variety of conditions that are seen in the otherwise well neonate. It is an essential text in any newborn regular care nursery, well child clinic, and primary care office."

"I am of the opinion that this book should be present in every nursery and over time will become a “classic.' "

"Impressive from the very first page, this is a resource like no other. Packed with high quality photos, it covers every usual physical aspect of normal newborns, as well as countless variations one might also encounter on exam. Additionally there is the bonus of Dr. Aby’s clinically useful information to go along with each photo. Without question this comprehensive book is a must-have for anyone working with newborns in any setting."

"I believe that this book is one every library in medical college will eventually have and most pediatricians and neonatologists will have in near future, as I see this will be one of the best references in neonatology."

"This book is without a doubt a must have for anyone either interested in or currently working with newborns. It is extremely easy to read and comprehend, thanks to the simplicity of the text as well as the high quality color pictures on nearly every page! Regardless of your experience, whether you are currently a medical student or have been in the medical field for many years, this book is both helpful and very educational. I highly recommend it as a great reference book."
