Format: Paperback
Recommended by my medical school and many tutors, this is an excellent introductory book to paediatrics. What makes this textbook stand out from the rest is its bright and colourful visual layout that really helps you sit down and read the text. It is concise and contains key facts in summary boxes supplemented by great images and excellent diagrams. Its clinical examples are good and help reinforce learning. I feel this is a fantastic book at covering the basics in paediatrics. It is certainly a definite buy for any medical student. The difficulty with the book is that in places it can feel bare and reference to another textbook may occasionally be needed. Nonetheless it is certainly one of the best undergraduate books in the field and has the best visual presentation of any book I have used at medical school.

This textbook seems to be the recommended text for paediatrics at most medical schools. I'm glad to say that it lives up to its reputation. It's easy to read. The diagrams are useful. It covers many aspects of Paediatrics. However, I thought that some sections did not cover some topics in detail enough....but then again, maybe that's just me because I like detail. This book is probably enough for the medical student to pass their exams.

It is a very good book and I purchased after recommendations. The style wasn't 100% to my taste in reading. Thought some bits were oversimplified and I found myself searching for more information.
Good for 3rd year level introductary but when it comes to finals need something more

Format: Paperback
The variety of components used to create each chapter is commendable. There is an abundance of illustrations, clinical pictures, algorithms to explain the management of important scenarios, and case histories to support the main text. Pictures and illustrations highlight either key facts or the actual appearance of clinical signs, something that should never be left to the written word alone. Diagrams are also never too small, sometimes taking up whole pages; ideal for a weary eye.

Each chapter is relatively short and colour-coded, so finding information is really easy. For each system, the text is logically divided into an overview, clinical picture and management. The writing has a simple elegance, avoiding long-winded paragraphs and confusing review-style descriptions of pathophysiology. I was also particularly impressed by the management sections, which almost always mention the evidence-base in passing.

On occasion, and my only criticism, the text assumes a level of knowledge (mainly medical terminology) that may require a quick google or glance at other core surgical or medical textbooks to remember. In wifi-less scenarios, a glossary could solve this. However, as a core textbook for Paediatrics, this book achieves everything necessary and more. I particularly enjoyed the amount of colour and space on each page; relaxed rather than tense, it could be read like a story book – rather fitting for the specialty.

This is a brilliant textbook for anyone taking a placement in Paediatrics. It is succint and presented in a very accessible manner. I felt like all the information I needed (and more) was in here, easily found and clearly laid out. There are plenty of images and illustrations to help identify many of the important problems children encounter. You can use this book to gain a sound knowledge of any topic but also flick through for revision. Definitely one of the staples for your library!

Rating: 3.5/5

I am doing Paediatrics this coming year in medical school and thought I would check out this text to check out its usefulness. It is a comprehensive Paediatrics text which is very well illustrated and has liberal use of pictures and tables to aid explanations. Particularly, the use of summary boxes at the end of chapters is fantastic and is a very nice concise way of rounding out the key points of the chapter. The book is colourful and easy to read, and contains a useful history and examination chapter as well as various case histories throughout the book. There is good coverage both of the psychological/developmental aspects of Paediatrics as well as the more organic, with a particularly heavy emphasis on public health (which may be a good or bad thing depending on how a given medical school’s Paediatrics curriculum is structured). The appendices contain useful reference information, although the font of the growth charts are rather small and thus a bit difficult to read. Chapters include normal development, disorders in development, ‘caring for the sick child’ (which explores settings, approaches, and ethics of care), paediatric emergencies, perinatal medicine, neonatal medicine, adolescent medicine, as well as other chapters dedicated to disorders of different organ systems- this structure is reasonable for a textbook. I think every specialty textbook should have an ‘emergencies’ section and a ‘history and examination’ section and this one fills those criteria.
