Book Review
Nobody's born knowing the capital of Wyoming, but kids can put an end to their geographic struggles with the Scholastic Atlas of the United States. This slick, well-organized reference is perfect for browsing--the states are arranged by region, and each is explored on a two-page spread with a colorful map, table of facts, and a short essay on its history, economy, and more.

Appendices cover U.S. territories and historical and geographical dimensions of the country as a whole. Whether your student is helping to plan a trip to Cheyenne or writing a report on the mighty Mississippi River, this atlas serves as a solid resource. (Ages 7 and...

Book Review
When National Geographic published its first Atlas of the World more than 35 years ago, the world was indeed a different place. In order to cover today's world--including its oceans, stars, climate, natural resources, and more--National Geographic has published its seventh edition of the Atlas of the World.

The papers are full of dire reports concerning America's youth and their level of geographic savvy. Having a big, beautiful atlas at home is great, but how often do the kids pore over the home reference shelf? The Notebook Atlas is three-hole punched for easy notebook insertion, and for a thin, light volume it's very complete, with 48 full-color maps and charts of the longitude and latitude of the world's countries and major cities. The maps are nicely done: colorful and easy to read, they inspire map literacy and a desire to see the world.

Book Description

From Library Journal
Now in its second edition, this is undoubtedly the best single-volume medical atlas available today, the only better resource being Netter's classic eight-volume set, published in 13 physical volumes over 33 years starting in 1959 and originally called CIBA Collection of Medical Illustrations after the publisher. (The name was changed to Netter's Collection of Medical Illustrations by the new publisher, Novartis.) Once again, Netter's masterly artwork has been faithfully reproduced, though the first edition (LJ 12/89) has been updated to reflect current anatomical knowledge and to incorporate new cross-sectional images to assist in the recognition of current "scanned" images. Organized by anatomical regions, the illustrations are colorful, easily defined, and clearly labeled, and the book closes with a very...

Atlas of Pediatric Physical Diagnosis
Basil J. Zitelli (Editor), Holly W. Davis (Editor)
0323017479
July 15, 2002
Hardcover
·
 
From the New England Journal of Medicine, August 7, 2003
This impressively heavy and bulky book is loaded with useful information and impressive photographs and should be added to the pediatric library of all departments, schools, and practitioners' offices. The fourth edition of the Atlas is more comprehensive than previous editions: it has vastly expanded chapters and additional features that make it easier to use than the previous editions. The quality of the illustrations continues to be high, and the tables, figures, radiographs, and photographs are generally of superior quality. Zitelli and Davis's book is, to be sure, a compendium of tables and images, but it also includes a considerable amount of written material to accompany the pictorial content. The selection of photographs is excellent. Most of them are in color, and the...

From Booklist
The goal of this colorful atlas is to help students in grades six through nine "better understand basic geographic concepts and compare and contrast information critical to making global connections." National Geographic atlases are known for their excellent introductory material, and this one is no exception. In fact, more than 50 pages of introductory material precede the maps. These pages cover an array of topics organized under "Physical Systems" and "Human Systems" and expose students to a variety of thematic, political, and physical maps. By comparison, the map section of the atlas seems a bit skimpy. Arrangement is by continent, and information is presented in fairly broad strokes. A box containing "Facts and Figures" and a satellite map kick off each continent's section, followed by a physical map, a political...

Review
"Miller's Anesthesia is without a doubt a complete and thorough reference of current knowledge in the field of anesthesia. Its strenght lies in its use of a wide range of recognized authors, contributors, and consulting editors, as well as a plethora of scientific information and extremely well-referenced chapters. Miller's Anesthesia is a reference text that every clinician should own or, at the very least, have access to. There are other reference books that provide quick summaries of various topics, but they should not be a replacement for such an in-depth and complete text as Miller's Anesthesia.
