Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Fenichel's survey of childhood neurology is concise, accurate, provides extensive coverage of the field, and is salted with pearls of wisdom." - Pediatric Neurology

"The clinical descriptions are a pleasure to read, bringing to mind a vivid picture of the clinical features and contrasting with the rather turgid accounts offered by many texts. Dr. Fenichel's writing style is further described as 'a model of brevity and clarity' and proclaims the text a 'miracle of compression.'" - Brain

"Clear, literate, well organized, and able to convey maximum information in minimum space without ever boring the reader." - Neurology
