Illustrated Textbook of Paediatrics, International Edition Summary


Illustrated Textbook of Paediatrics, International Edition by Tom Lissauer

"Illustrated Textbook of Paediatrics 2/e" covers the core curriculum for undergraduate teaching of clinical paediatrics. The second edition retains the innovative, full-colour design of the first, incorporating numerous colour photographs, diagrams, illustrated case histories and clinical hints tips highlighted by a 'smiley face' icon. The writing style is succinct, with bullet-point lists used to facilitate reading and learning, and the content is pared down to cover what students really need to know and no more. There is one new chapter on The Child in Society covering general issues in child health in developed and developing countries. All the system-based chapters have been thoroughly revised and coverage of ethics, evidence-based medicine and developmental paediatrics has been expanded.

Illustrated Textbook of Paediatrics, International Edition Reviews


"I first saw this book and it took me two minutes to decide to buy it. Paediatrics is the first exam I have passed without a viva or re sit and I have to say that the quality of your textbook had a lot to do with it. If I had used the recommended textbook I would surely have failed! The book is clear, concise, has a lot of pictures and brings paediatrics to life. It is also very practical, does not go into too much detail and does not disillusion the student with masses of useless information. If all our textbooks were as good as this, passing med school exams would be far easier." Sushant Varma, University of Sheffield
