It was my mistake to read from this book, ignoring the good reviews written for (Blueprints in Pediatrics)!! To tell you the truth, I didn't enjoy reading it & I found many chapters poorly written. e.g. - Modern basic genetics - Genetic counselling - Inborn errors of metabolism - Meningitis & encephalitis in infancy and childhood (even Kernig's & Brudzinski's signs are not mentioned!!) - Anemias in childhood.
However, there are few excellent chapters (e.g. Part 14: Disorders of the CNS), which are better written than many textbooks. Furthermore, it has many case discussions, and MCQs at the end of each Part.
