    Reviewer: Jay P. Goldsmith, MD (Tulane University School of Medicine)
    Description: Edited by two premier neonatologists and using a question-and-answer format, this book passes on the wisdom (i.e. secrets and trivia) of great clinicians to students of neonatology in an easy to read and fun presentation. This book updates the 2007 edition, although many of the "secrets" are timeless and repeated from previous editions.
    Purpose: According to the editors, this book is intended to be both "useful and fun." It is not encyclopedic, but it addresses useful facts in many areas of the care of critically ill infants that might be the subjects of rounds in the NICU.
    Audience: The book is intended for healthcare providers who care for critically ill newborns. Academicians may use it as material for teaching and students and residents may find it is helpful in preparation for boards and other exams. It is a mix of material both common and sometimes obscure, making the book interesting to even the most experienced practitioners. The editors and many of the 35 contributors are recognized authorities in the field.
    Features: The book begins with the 100 top secrets in perinatal medicine (which are quite different than those listed in the second edition). These are points of emphasis for board exams and they summarize salient aspects of a wide range of perinatal medicine. The rest of the book is divided into 19 sections covering most aspects of perinatology. Each chapter highlights key points, alerting the reader to the most important aspects of the subject. This edition has improved illustrations and pictures along with many useful charts and tables.
    Assessment: This unique book is a useful reference for any neonatal provider. Its question-and-answer format is enticing to readers who want to make a quick foray into a subject. Even the most experienced neonatologist will learn new facts from this book and will enjoy sharing in the wisdom of these teachers.
