Robert Haggerty and Frederick Lovejoy, two of Janeway’s most devoted and distinguished trainees (and there were hundreds of them), have composed a well-written biography of Janeway that details his family background and his career. These are accounts that embrace the history of academic medicine. Although the major intended audience of this well documented and illustrated book includes physicians who served or trained at Boston Children’s Hospital, the wider readership will be those who are fascinated by cultural and particularly medical history… Haggerty and Lovejoy have done Janeway justice. For that and for their own diverse academic contributions, we remain deeply grateful.—David G. Nathan, Journal of the American Medical Association

This is a wonderful book about a very special person… The book is full of interesting antidotes. I encourage every pediatrician to read it, but especially those who are in pediatric academia or research.—Jerold F. Lucey, Pediatrics
