Published Reviews

"sets 'biblical standards' as the pinnacle of current medical knowledge on the neurology of the newborn"

"A highly recommendable book for now and for foreseeable future"

 "This edition reaffirms the preeminent place is holds as the gold standard in this field. The addition of new editors and authors has broadened the scope and brought even greater credibility to the opinions expressed in areas that are controversial. This is a "must have" for every neonatal care provider and will probably find its way into many courtrooms where the etiology of perinatal brain injury is being adjudicated." Reviewed by Jay P. Goldsmith, MD (Tulane University School of Medicine) Doody's Score: 97, 5 Stars!
