This is a comprehensive text that provides a full approach to the management of the pediatric patient. In addition, it provides an overview of contemporary issues pertaining to pediatric chiropractic, as well as a full discussion of the biomechanics of the pediatric spine. Issues relating to diagnosis and management are well presented, and there is also emphasis on care of the pregnant women. The purpose is to provide a description of case management for the pediatric patient, from before birth through adolescence. It is mainly directed at chiropractic students and practitioners. The text has five sections relating to contemporary issues, pregnancy and birth, clinical and radiological assessment, clinical techniques, and case management. This will be a controversial text. Although there is much here of great value, and certainly a lot of time and effort went into the text, some issues will arise. The section on immunization is presented negatively, with an emphasis on the complications from each vaccine, but spends little time on the benefits. There is information on the management of fractures that may be questionable since little information can be derived from the literature. Too much of the case management section is supported by case reports as opposed to more rigorous research, although I am aware that this is a problem in general. There was no need to use nude children as models in illustrations; they could have been better draped. Too many references are from 20 years ago or longer. There is much to admire here, but some material may need better support.
