"This pediatric reference is invaluable for pediatricians, pediatric nurse practitioners, family physicians and medical students among others. Each topic is presented in a concise, clear and useful manner. Another impressive aspect is including a case study at the beginning of every chapter with resolution at the end. This is incredibly helpful to attract the students attention. I certainly will change my lecture style and start every lecture by a case study. I am always looking for something new to improve my teaching style."

“I found the textbook useful for referencing different

aspects of pediatrics. It was easy to read, and I imagine it

to be so for various level of learners from medical student,

to resident, to attendings. I also liked the introductory case

followed by its conclusion at the end of each chapter.”

UCLA, Clinical Instructor, General Pediatrics
