If you are looking for an up-to-date encyclopaedia of paediatric chest disease, then this is it. As expected, this second edition is a substantial improvement over the first. Most of the 75 chapters are short and user friendly. The text is broken up with numerous coloured diagrams, figures, tables, x-ray images and boxed sections highlighting key points, teaching points, pitfalls and controversies. For those who want teaching resources, all images can be captured with ease directly into Powerpoint presentations via electronic access.
