Overview

Illustrated Textbook of Pediatrics 2/e covers the core curriculum for undergraduate teaching of clinical paediatrics. The second edition retains the innovative, full-color design of the first, incorporating numerous color photographs, diagrams, illustrated case histories and clinical hints & tips highlighted by a 'smiley face' icon. The writing style is succinct, with bullet-point lists used to facilitate reading and learning, and the content is pared down to cover what students really need to know . There is one new chapter on The Child in Society covering general issues in child health in developed and developing countries. All the system-based chapters have been thoroughly revised and coverage of ethics, evidence-based medicine and developmental pediatrics has been expanded.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I first saw this book and it took me two minutes to decide to buy it. Paediatrics is the first exam I have passed without a viva or re sit and I have to say that the quality of your textbook had a lot to do with it. If I had used the recommended textbook I would surely have failed! The book is clear, concise, has a lot of pictures and brings paediatrics to life. It is also very practical, does not go into too much detail and does not disillusion the student with masses of useless information. If all our textbooks were as good as this, passing med school exams would be far easier." Sushant Varma, University of Sheffield
James A. Stockman III
This introductory textbook of pediatrics is unique in its presentation, organization, graphics, and design. It has been written to provide a concise and highly condensed synopsis of core information related to the more common diagnostic and management problems of children. Intentionally, basic physiology is not included in order to emphasize only clinically relevant material. Given the enormous scope of current information related to pediatrics, this goal of condensation is a worthy one and one that is accomplished well. The textbook is largely intended for medical students. Certainly those in nursing and other disciplines will also find the work extremely helpful. The authors suggest that postgraduate physicians may find the work suitable when preparing for examinations. The latter audience, however, will more likely find the material too basic for this purpose. The authors are creditable authorities. Many of the chapters are written by well-known subspecialists. The unique features of this work include its illustrations. It is literally filled with high-quality tables, figures, and color photographs. The text itself is presented in lecture note style using bullets and short sentences. Unfortunately, the tables are presented with a graduated background shading, which makes the bottom of all of the tables a bit difficult to read. Otherwise, the illustrations are of unusually high quality. The table of contents and index are well done, and the suggested reading list after each chapter has been carefully selected and is timely. The overall appearance of the book, which is in soft cover, is of a high quality. Excellent paper stock has been used, which allows for superiorreproduction of the graphics. This is an excellent addition to the numerous existing works intended to present a concise overall view of pediatrics at the introductory level. What makes it worthy in this regard are the precise use of space and the unique presentation in terms of graphic materials. Medical school pediatric clerkship directors should carefully examine this book for its potential inclusion in medical student curricular reading. It would nicely complement current study guide requirements.
From The Critics
Reviewer: James A. Stockman III, MD (American Board of Pediatrics)
Description: This introductory textbook of pediatrics is unique in its presentation, organization, graphics, and design.
Purpose: It has been written to provide a concise and highly condensed synopsis of core information related to the more common diagnostic and management problems of children. Intentionally, basic physiology is not included in order to emphasize only clinically relevant material. Given the enormous scope of current information related to pediatrics, this goal of condensation is a worthy one and one that is accomplished well.
Audience: The textbook is largely intended for medical students. Certainly those in nursing and other disciplines will also find the work extremely helpful. The authors suggest that postgraduate physicians may find the work suitable when preparing for examinations. The latter audience, however, will more likely find the material too basic for this purpose. The authors are creditable authorities. Many of the chapters are written by well-known subspecialists.
Features: The unique features of this work include its illustrations. It is literally filled with high-quality tables, figures, and color photographs. The text itself is presented in lecture note style using bullets and short sentences. Unfortunately, the tables are presented with a graduated background shading, which makes the bottom of all of the tables a bit difficult to read. Otherwise, the illustrations are of unusually high quality. The table of contents and index are well done, and the suggested reading list after each chapter has been carefully selected and is timely. The overall appearance of the book, which is in soft cover, is of a high quality. Excellent paper stock has been used, which allows for superior reproduction of the graphics.
Assessment: This is an excellent addition to the numerous existing works intended to present a concise overall view of pediatrics at the introductory level. What makes it worthy in this regard are the precise use of space and the unique presentation in terms of graphic materials. Medical school pediatric clerkship directors should carefully examine this book for its potential inclusion in medical student curricular reading.
