From reviews of the previous edition:
'This is a must have textbook for paediatrics for medical students. From what I've heard it's pretty much the recommended text in most places, and for good reason! All the information you need to know is written out in simple English. The chapters focus on the important conditions within the different systems as well as other additional information that is pertinent in the field, e.g. child protection and genetics. Worth every penny and is bound to get you through exams.'

'Perfect as an introductory book to a subject that is often unlike any other in medicine. Well laid out and easy to read.'
K C Henderson (UK)
'This is really a great textbook for paediatrics. The most powerful features are, of course, the perfect images, summary boxes and diagrams. This book is both concise and comprehensive at the same time.'
D K Charalampopoylos (Greece)
'This is a book that was highly recommended by colleagues working in Australia and the UK. I am preparing to sit for the Australian Medical Council Exams in May 2010 and I needed something with pictures and easy to read. It's got many pictures and I read it from cover to cover in 3 weeks! It's a great book that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to any doctor out there.'
At Okullo (Belgium)
'This is the recommended text for paediatrics at my school, and for good reason. The text, whilst sometimes being lengthy, is well laid out, gives good explanations and goes into sufficient depth for final year undergraduate medicine and for junior doctors in this specialty. There are plenty of diagrams and break out boxes summarising key take home messages.'
M Roach (UK)
'Very good book. Lots of good summaries.'
L Marchal (France)
'This is the first paediatrics textbook that I really enjoyed. The information is very practical and useful.'
