"This review would suggest that it would be useful for students and advanced trainees in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, pediatrics, or other disciplines that require a solid grounding in child development. Active practitioners will also find it useful in updating their knowledge base with a user–friendly reference book". (Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, October 2012)
This timely second edition should prove an accessible and valuable reference for experienced professionals in child and adolescent mental health by providing excellent updates on topics that are not always well covered in standard text books. (Child and Adolescent Mental Health, May 2012)
"..Mutter & Snowling provide a first–rate account of literacy disorders that includes both dyslexia and reading comprehension disorder. Conti–Ramsden & Durkin s chapter on specific language impairment is an elegant summary of the topic. Early–onset bipolar disorder by James is an admirable account of the current state of knowledge on the subject, and Taylor s chapter on diagnostic classification describes the issues facing child and adolescent psychiatry masterfully and is opportune at a moment when DSM and ICD are going through revisions. For these chapters alone, the book is worth buying. A strength of the book is that the 46 short chapters provide something for everyone practising child psychology and psychiatry." (The British Journal of Psychiatry, February 2012)
