Editorial Review(s)

While there are many pediatric neurology books, this one is accessible to a wide variety of healthcare professionals. The authors strived to provide a resource somewhere between a voluminous reference and a smaller introductory book, and they have succeeded. In this edition, the authors have updated their chapters with the latest research. This book should appeal to medical students, nurses, and physicians who care for pediatric patients. - Kevin Chapman, MD, (Barrow Neurological Institute), Doody’s Reviews
