"This book is really a very much-needed text and reference book which is not only immensely helpful for physical anthropologists, but also for general biologists and anatomists working on the development of the human skeleton. ...The book can whole-heartedly be recommended..." ―M. Schultz for AUXOLOGIE (2002)
"The text is informative and well written, and makes fluent reading. This book will become a standard reference text and should be available not only in departments of archaeology and anthropology, but also to paediatric clinicians, radiologists and lawyers." ―Christine Hall in THE JOURNAL OF BONE AND JOINT SURGERY (April 2001)
"Scheuer and Black have produced a much-needed reference text where previously there was mostly a void. These authors have invested heavily in researching the literature as well as museum collections in order to create Developmental Juvenile Osteology. Anyone who works with human skeletal remains in any context would greatly benefit from having this text as part of his or her library." ―Lee Meadows Jantz, University of Tennessee, in AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY (2001)
"It is without doubt a worthy addition to the field of anatomy and should be a strong 'must have' for anyone interested in the growing human, whether from a clinical, forensic or archeological point of view. It should also find an indispensable place on the shelves of libraries and institutions where teaching and understanding of human anatomy is an important component of any courses and their specification or curricula." ―Peter Dangerfield, Liverpool University, in JOURNAL OF ANATOMY (2001)
"...a welcome, long overdue contribution... The greatest achievement of this book is the combination of its unusual level of detail, top-quality illustrative material, and methodologies the authors have developed themselves, or wisely culled (and adapted) from fellow researchers. ...the book is unsurpassed in its handling of the complex anatomy of the young individual. ...an essential volume for archaeologists and physical anthropologists in the field..." ―Yoel Rak, Tel Aviv University, in JOURNAL OF HUMAN EVOLUTION (2001)
"This book should be in every medical and anthropological library." ―Edgar F. Allin, DOODY'S HEALTH SCIENCES BOOK REVIEW JOURNAL (2001)

In my opinion, the best part of this textbook is its enormous bibliography. For many classes it has helped me find much more relevant sources than PubMed and the like. I have heard a few say that they have found some faulty information in the text of the book, but that is what the bibliography is for (I never trust textbooks 100%, anyway).
The usefulness of this text is comparable to Tim White's Human Osteology. The White book uses extensive real life photos with text description and predominantly covers adult morphology. This juvenile osteology book craftfully uses hand drawings and color illustration to depict the skeleton and muscle attachments. Although it may seem pricely, this is a must-have reference book for those students and researchers interested in human osteology, growth and development, forensics and comparative anatomy.
