“It is apparent that this book can be used as a tool in preparation for the pediatric neurology board exam, for self-assessment around the time of a pediatric neurology rotation, or as a reference for practicing physicians involved in the care of pediatric neurology patients. The audience could include medical students or residents in pediatrics, neurology, pediatric neurology, psychiatry, and child psychiatry.” (Eduardo De Sousa, Doody's Book Reviews, August 16, 2019)
