One is perhaps most impressed by the very clever arrangement of "The Compleat Pediatrician." Only after a study of the rather simple instructions for its use can the book be fully appreciated.
Its outstanding purpose is its aid in diagnosis, which is accomplished by a grouping of symptoms. The symptoms and diseases have been arranged into seven chapters on the basis of the anatomical system most often involved. Each of the chapters starts with a list of symptoms and signs involving that particular system, together with a list of the diseases which cause them most frequently.
