"This is an essential guide to the neuropsychological and neurobehavioral consequence of pediatric diseases for healthcare providers working with a pediatric population." --Doody's
"This is a well-bound and sturdy, large format text. The page layout is attractive, and the typeface is easy to read. Tables, black-and-white illustrations, and figures are used sparingly but effectively. There is an extensive index that appears to be accurate and proved useful to the reviewer. Child neurologists and their trainees will find this a valuable reference." --Pediatric Neurology
