Published Reviews

    "Improved understanding of the human genome and the regulation of embryogensis has contributed in a major way to the content and new references. The editors have elimated clinical information which is easily found in neonatology text books and have achieved their goal of producing an excellent and comprehensive reference text. There is a Kindle version avaialbe and purchase of the two hard-back volumes includes access to the full text on-line. This feature is easy to use and provides a number of advantages...As a tool for identifying knowledge gaps it is a treasure trove for research scientists. It is a comprehensiverepository of present accumulated knowledge...I recommend unreservedly the purchase of this fourth edition to all European Neurology, Obstetric and Paediatric department libraries."
