I understand the concept, this book is supposed to be 'the bible' of peds.....I find this book very disappointing. I don't like how it's organized, cardiac is only ok. I really don't like the formulary, everything about it is just OK. Pediatric Pearls is much better. The only reason I bought it was because it was recommended for my peds rotation. Save your money!

The Harriet Lane has long been the pediatric classic. There are several things that this book covers exceptionally well. I probably use the cardiology section most often, usually in the context of trying to decipher EKGs. The new allergy section is helpful in the outpatient setting but probably will not be extensively used in the hospital setting. The formulary is useful but I've been using epocrates on my handheld more and more. Overall, I rely on other sources with increasing frequency. My major complaints are weight, price, and font size. Over time the size of the book has increased to over 1000 pages. It's heavy enough to become a nuisance to carry around. With that increase in size, I've had more and more difficulty finding pertinent information since each chapter is organized in a different way. The price is starting to become a deterrent since I use the book less but pay more. Lastly, perhaps because I'm getting older, I wish the font size were a bit larger. In summary, a decent buy, especially if you require the formulary for prescribing information.

The Harriet does it again. Every pediatric resident should have this book and carry it as a quick yet complete reference. The charts are easier to read in this edition compared to prior ones. You can take it to Kinkos and have them separate out the formulary and rebind it.
