'The book is enormous and contains almost 1000 pages. It is split into 11 different sections, with several chapters in each. Information is easy to find. There are many useful tables, diagrams, photographs, radiology images and even some colour images of fundi.' Rachel Kneen, ACNR, 2010

'This third edition of this classic text is a must for the bookshelves of all child neurologists, neurodevelopmental pediatricians, and behavioral pediatricians, as well as adult neurologists and pediatricians who have an interest in the neurologic problems of children. It covers new information exceedingly well, and effectively replaces the second edition.' Marvin A. Fishman, Pediatric Neurology, 2009

'In summary this textbook certainly is a great addition of neurologic knowledge for the developmental-behavioral pediatrician, being it for training or for clinical work. The text is very readable and offers a broad range of information with a vast bibliography. I can recommend it especially as a resource for training programs in developmental-behavioral pediatrics and for the neurologically interested clinician in general.' Dr. Olaf Kraus de Camargo, Journal of Developmental Pediatrics, 2011

'This text deserves a place in the library of every child neurology training program, and will be useful to many practicing child neurologists as well.' Wendy G. Mitchell, Neurology, 2009
