From the reviews:

“It is a 350-page compendium of all one would wish to know about the childhood airway and how to manage the problems that afflict it. … there are tremendous numbers of endoscopic pictures, graphs, charts, and drawings, which are so important to the understanding of this material. This is a well-written, concise update on the state of pediatric airway management. Even those unfamiliar with this topic will find the graphic presentations easy to understand and appreciate.” (Robert M. Arensman, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2011)
