Selected as "Highly Commended" in Neurology at BMA Medical Book Awards for 2017.
“This book, while of manageable size, is sufficiently comprehensive to extend the knowledge and interest of all those who work with children. It is the most up-to-date book on the subject for a problem, which would appear to be becoming more common.” (BMA Medical Book Awards, September, 2017)“This useful overview of insomnia, hypersomnia, parasomnias, and obstructive sleep apnea in children also covers the interaction of sleep disorders with other conditions, such as psychiatric illnesses, epilepsy, and neurodevelopmental disorders. ... It could also be a profitable read for upper-level residents in psychiatry and neurology. ... Overall, this is a high-quality book that has much to recommend it to practitioners who wish to learn more about the clinical aspects of sleep disorders.” (Eric Gausche, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2017)
