Nelson's is particularly strong in pediatric cardiology and immunology. Nonetheless, "Nelson's Textbook of Pediatrics" comes as close as possible. Along with another other classic pediatric text, "Rudolph's Pediatrics," Nelson's represents the best of pediatric medicine in America. Every pediatrician has a favorite, but Nelson's is the gold standard. Nelson Textbook of Pediatrics has been the world's most trusted pediatrics resource for nearly 75 years. Nelson's Textbook of Pediatrics continues to provide THE BEST pediatric information with expanded premium multimedia features, extensively revised content, and two new editors. Highly recommended!
