"Owning this book is a potential major hazard to workplace productivity...there is the amazing online electronic version that can lead you seamlessly from one compelling section to another, with amusing diversions via Pub Med on the way. Whole days could be passed like this, so enormously interesting, wide-ranging and well-presented is the content...This book is suitable for paediatric neurologists of all vintages and would make an excellent addition to any personal, departmental or hospital library. It is comprehensive, stimulating and engaging and I plan to direct trainees to it as a reference source. It is a long time since I put my hand in my pocket to purchase a textbook, but if I had not been fortunate enough to have been asked to review this book, I believe I would have made an exception...Swaiman et al has found a firm place on my occupational bookshelf."

"Most of us who had the privilege of reviewing previous editions of this book gave it our unqualified recommendation, and this edition warrants the same high praise. Pediatric Neurology: Principles and Practice represents the combined knowledge and experience of many of the best minds in child neurology. It remains the sole indispensable standard not only for neurologists treating children but also for psychiatrists, pediatricians, developmentalists, rehabilitation specialists, and those in related disciplines. It is unlikely that anyone caring for children with neurological disorders can or should practice without it."
