"Should appeal to every pathologist who deals with the disorders and deformities of early life." -- Pediatric and Developmental Pathology, 2007
"The presentation is spectacular. 2,350 (94%) of the illustrations are in color, and most are of
excellent quality." -- Pediatric and Developmental Pathology, 2007
"This is a work that pleases the eye, feeds the mind and tones the arm muscles.... So get out that credit card, bulk up those biceps, reinforce your bookshelves and add these lovely and generally excellent volumes to your departmental or personal library." -- Pediatric and Developmental Pathology, 2007
"One of the most exciting features of this work is the more than 2500 labeled photographs of gross and microscopic pathologic specimens. Many of the images have helpful radiologic correlations ... The second edition of Potter's Pathology of the Fetus, Infant and Child should not only be the text of choice for pediatric pathologists but should be a primary reference for obstetricians, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, pediatricians, geneticists, and pediatric surgeons who care for the fetus or infant with complications." -- JAMA, 2008
"These volumes should not only be on the shelves of pediatric pathologists and pediatricians but should reach all pathologists and advanced trainees whose practices or subspecialty interests include fetal or perinatal pathology... In busy pathology departments where the most useful textbooks tend to "disappear," one could easily predict that the words "Where's Potter's?" will be uttered frequently. For this reason, you'd better get two!" - Journal of Neuropathology & Experimental Neurology, 2007
