"Nelson Textbook of Pediatrics, now in its 19th Edition, has been widely regarded as the definitive paediatric reference textbook for the best part of a century...In conclusion, I was very impressed with the overall package that I reviewed. The textbook, by itself, would probably not sway me from continuing to use Forfar's as my first-line reference, because I find it easier to navigate , aqnd just as authoritative. The webpage, howeer, was susch a fantastic and individuals at any stage in their career. The paediatric reference book has gone to the next level."

"This widely respected, comprehensive, and now online synthesis of clinical pediatrics continues as the standard resource in this discipline. The editors state their goal is to "provide the most authoritative coverage of the best approaches to care" of normal and ill neonates, children, and adolescents. They achieve this ambitious goal. This 19th edition represents a significant advance over previous editions of this authoritative book. It remains the standard in the field of pediatric medicine." - Daniel Bronfin Ochsner Clinic Foundation
