Pre-publication reviews

"I'd have loved to have discovered this book during my own paediatric rotation and exams! It's got lots of colourful illustrations and is really interesting and easy to read. It's a great text to use both as an introduction to paediatrics, as well as a brilliant revision guide. Definitely recommended to anyone trying to get to grips with the basics of paediatrics!"
Final year student, Oxford University

"there is no other undergraduate textbook of Paediatrics available that offers such a concise yet complete exposition of the subject."
Final year student, Imperial Medical School

"the best description and approach I've ever read to the notoriously difficult and problematic topic of paediatric history and examination"
Fourth year student, Southampton Medical School

"the content is pared down to cover what students need to know and no more"
PhD student, Barts and QM medical school, London

"Almost the perfect paediatrics textbook...this should be a really useful book"
Fifth year student, Oxford University

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Reviews of this edition:

"I think it is the actually the best paediatric book currently on the market that I have seen. Its strong points are that it is in colour and well laid out. The chapters are all of a good size and it goes into the right amount of depth for a medical student. I like the way that it has both detailed text and the at a glance boxes. There are also plenty of pictures throughout the book which aid memory. I also have found it particularly useful the way it references other pages of the book which are related to what you are reading.

I can't think of anything that it can approve upon. I only wish that I had it at the beginning of my paed module!" UEA Student

"This book is easy to read and full of well thought out colourful diagrams and pictures; the sometimes overwhelming developmental milestones are particularly well laid out. Complete with a CD-ROM on the examination of children this is the best undergraduate textbook on paediatrics I have read, I only wish I had found it before my finals. Recommended to all 4th and 5th year students." Surgo, Glasgow University Medical Journal, 78:4

Reviews of previous editions:

"What the authors of this new book have succeeded in doing, is providing something lacking in other texts. The masterful illustrations present symptoms, signs and the medical equipment and clinical skills often seen and required on the wards. The 'At a Glance' boxes provide quick and easy reference to common paediatric conditions with a carefully selected, manageable knowledge base. This book was written with the new GMC recommendations in mind, and it appears to have achieved its aims of presenting core information and skills in a memorable way."
Guy's Gazette, Guy's, King's & St Thomas' Hospitals Medical & Dental Schools

"...an excellent text with a novel and very successful approach to the teaching of child health."
SouthamptonHealth Journal

"...as a student nurse I have found this book invaluable in the short time I have had it...When working on a busy ward this book will be a vital guide for quick referencing and invaluable for teaching sessions. Having this book on the ward will also enable a student nurse or staff nurse to look up a particular diagnosis to expand their knowledge. Many of my colleagues also share my high opinion of this book."
Journal of Child Health Care

"...beautifully presented book...The 'At a glance' summary presentations are a superb aid to student and registrar learning."
Family Practice

"In contrast to many medical textbooks this is beautifully presented and a pleasure to read. There is a large emphasis on community paediatrics, which other textbooks seem to neglect."
Barts and the London Chronicle

"Buy it"
Cambridge Medicine, Addenbrooke's Clinical School Gazette

"This is a very well designed book which covers the whole of paediatrics from prematurity to adolescence dealing with both ill health and health prevention issues. A well designed text which students should find informative and yet easy to read."
CALReviews

"I do not know if there are other paediatric textbooks that could make paediatrics easier to read than this one."
Medical Student, SydneyUniversity, Australia

"This book offers a clinically orientated and hands-on approach to paediatrics unlike other textbooks in the field. The pages are colourful with excellent figures and the book benefits from an included self-assessment section. The CD-ROM features an easy to follow demonstration of paediatric examinations which is a handy addition to the examination chapter in the book" Medical Student, Oxford University

"Plenty of vivid disease cases and situations with minimal technical vocab. makes it a pleasant read. The Questionning encourages reflection and analysis whilst comon pitfalls are pointed out. The imaginative structure and colouring ensures the information is never overwhelming with lots of valuable tips and handy summaries." Medical Student, Brighton Sussex Medical School

"A clear and comprehensive book that will no doubt become indispensible to any medical student about to embark on a paediatrics rotation, beautifully presented." Medical Student, St. Andrews University

"Exhaustive without being exhausting, this book manages to cover pretty much everything without wearing you out in the process. An interesting, fun, well written book." Medical Student, St. Georges Medical School

"A good core text which is well laid out, easy to read, understand and navigate through." Medical Student, Manchester University

"A fully comprehensive text covering paediatrics and child health for medical students and junior doctors. It has up-to-date information and is designed for effective learning, with full colour illustrations - an essential buy." Medical Student, Nottingham University
