I particularly love the pulmonary chapter!
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.
