Reviews"The editors are to be congratulated for assembling a comprehensive and well-written monograph on th intersection of sleep and child neurology...The aesthetic value of the book is similarly pleasing, with a beautiful cover, clear figures, and well placed tables, highlighting Key Points or Clinical Pearls in nearly every chapter.
Overall, we applaud this achievement in producing a foundation, as the editors note in their preface, to the field of pediatric neurosomnology. This book was a worthwhile project of which the authors, editors, and publishers can be proud, and it is recommended for clinicians, and especially child neurologists, with an interest in the sleep aspects of pediatric neurology."-Phillip L. Pearl, MD and Judith Owens, MD, Pediatric Neurology, Volume 45, Issue 4, October 2011
"This book is a comprehensive reference for those interested in sleep disorders in pediatric neurologic disease. The book is strongly recommended for pediatricians and family care physicians, neurologists, sleep specialists, and anyone who is involved in the care of children with neurologically related sleep problems. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, gained a wealth of new information, and have developed new ways of accessing sleep-related childhood neurologic presentations."-Neurology
"This book is unique in gathering such detailed information on pediatric sleep medicine in one place...a very good bookshelf resource for anyone interested in pediatric sleep medicine."-Doody's Reviews- return to top -
