From the Publisher"Difficult concepts are clearly explained, lists (an inescapable fact of learning medicine) are invariably made easy to digest in highlighted boxes and great use is made of section summaries which reiterate and emphasise the key learning points (useful for that last minute revision). The book, as the title suggests, is lavishly illustrated, both with diagrams as well as clinical photographs."
“An excellent text for students, interns and residents in training. A very didactic textbook. Each chapter has tables, illustrations and photos in colour, and a short bibliography, of high technical production.”

BMA Book Awards 2008 - Highly Commended
"Illustrated Textbook of Paediatrics is deservedly known as 'the' textbook for the undergraduate medical student who is venturing into paediatrics. It covers the topics the student needs to know in enough detail to give them a sensible grounding in the specialty. It is easy to access, dip into, or read from cover to cover. For the ever-advancing use of the internet in daily medical life, the publisher has introduced an online access with interactive facilities. Overall: an essential purchase for medical students, GP trainees, paediatric specialist nurses, and anyone looking to brush up on their paediatrics."
Highly Commended at The Royal Society of Medicine & The Society of Authors’ Medical Book Awards
“An excellent textbook for students, superbly illustrated.”
"Although aimed at medical students, this is also ideal for a GP and covers most of the territory that a primary health care team needs to know about paediatrics. All the important paediatric areas are well covered. Health visitors and practice nurses will also find this book helpful in their everyday work. I can’t think of a single criticism of the book. This is ideal for a practice or personal library for a GP who just wants an up to date, accessible and well written reference source on paediatrics."
