Abstract It is always a pleasure to review good books written by one's former residents. Dr Evans' new "red book" is the "Harriet Lane" handbook of child neurology. It is written as a manual for pediatricians and others involved in the Primary health care of children. The eight sections cover neurologic evaluation, neurodiagnostic procedures, neonatal neurologic disorders, developmental disorders, neurodegenerative and metabolic diseases, neuromuscular diseases, acquired disorders of the central nervous system, and paroxysmal disorders. The text is succinct, pertinent, and useful. Tables, drawings, and illustrations are used liberally. Some statements are made with which not all child neurologists would agree, eg, "Asphyxia continues to be one of the major causes of cerebral palsy in term infants" (page 159). The standard topics are covered succinctly. A few magnetic resonance imaging scans are included.
