    "The production values of this book are excellent; it is beautifully produced with loads of illustrations such as pictures, tables and radiological images… the book is so well put together that it is very tempting to simply open it up and read it for the sake of interest, education and curiosity. It is a pleasure to read sections at random and that is a tribute to what an excellent book this is." —Dr Harry Brown, Glycosmedia

    —BMA Medical Book Competition

    "This book's cover will never have to be dusted off… [it is an] all encompassing coffer of paediatric knowledge."
    Archives of Disease in Childhood

    "Excellent… It is strongly suggested that not only you, but also your colleagues and students, always have it within reach."
    Acta Paediatrica
