Better than competitor sunflower book. This book is the best out there for paediatrics.
I bought this book's competing book on the market before I found this book because it's been so well praised but it was a big disappointment (was so bombarded with wordy information that I couldn't recall the main points). Eventually i gave up on that book and bought this "Paeds and Child Health" book which i decided against in the first place. A big loss of money for buying 2 paeds book but it was one of the best decisions i've made in med school that saved me for the rest of my paeds rotation (I can finally answer questions in ward rounds!).
This book is organized both by body systems as well as symptoms. It functions both like a standard textbook yet organized like clinical cases. For example it had a chapter on "pain" then goes through the differentials properly like standard textbooks. It also has "at glance box" for each disease it describes. Very handy and helpful to memorize before exams. You don't even need to highlight the book because the main points are already grouped in the at a glance boxes. And if a consultant/registrar ask you a question just think of that little at a glance box and you'll be sure to impress. All in all, this is the book to buy for paeds.
