Abstract Perhaps the best way to evaluate a new volume on pediatric therapy is to use it in daily office practice as the reviewer did for some three months. By such use, the third edition of Pediatric Therapy by Harry C. Shirkey and 89 other contributors proves to be a remarkable volume. For example, when presented with a patient with failure to thrive because of merycism, I found a nice concise, but cogent, discussion on p 554. The book is authoritative, educational, and highly practical. The opening chapter on general principles of treatment, classes of therapy, the placebo, etc, is well written and contains surprises for even the experienced practitioner. Two sections printed on colored paper, a list of poisons (pink) and a table of drugs by therapeutic classification (blue), facilitate rapid reference to the volume. A good index is also a great help.
