I work in pediatric research, and have found this book to be incredibly valuable. It does a great job explaining the science behind pediatric sleep -- sleep architecture, the neuroendocrine regulation of sleep, how neuroanatomy plays in, etc. It also goes through common childhood and adolescent sleep problems, including prevention, diagnosis, and treatment for each. And all of the information in the book is broken down by different developmental stages -- going through the differences between infants, toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged children, and adolescents. The book manages to be clear and concise without being dumbed down, but it is still accessible enough that I can hand it to my new research assistants to read for a general overview of the field. I think the book would be especially useful for pediatric primary care providers -- both the book itself and the patient handouts and questionnaires you can access online (using the code inside the book) include some great clinical tools.

As another reviewer noted below, there are some hiccups here and there in the index, where it seems to refer to non-existent pages. However, with the book you also get access to a full web-based version of the book online -- and being able to keyword search on that is far better than any index, at least for me. Especially since I loan this book out to staff and colleagues so often, it is great to also have access to the web ebook version.

I just received the book today. The information is well organized, well presented, and very relevant. However, the book ends at page 232, which is the last page of the index. I found many index topics cited with page numbers that do not exist. One example is on page 232 in the index for "weekend oversleep" listing pages 35, 145, 236, 238. Page 231 of the index lists "snacks" on pages 46, 237-238. I just don't understand this problem, unless the numbers reflect the supplemental information on the website.

I am studying for the sleep educator credential. I work in a sleep lab that does not treat pediatric patients, so this book was a must. It's very informative and concise.

Great review with practical information. Recommended for either pediatricians or those in sleep medicine.

I have read both editions of this new clinical guide. It is a "must" for primary care givers and sleep specialists. Very conscise and with useful highlights.
The online tools that can be used as handouts to patients are also useful as education material.

A very good overview. Easy to read and chapters are clear. Good for medical review or for a well informed parent.
