This is an excellent way of learning about paediatric symptoms and signs, especially in unwell children. These children can present to a number of different facilities such as primary care, walk in centres, Accident and Emergency departments as well as of course paediatricians. As we all know, it is not always easy to assess a child and it can be sometimes difficult to make the correct diagnosis in an unwell child. This helpful book is different from a standard medical textbook as it does not classify diseases into systems as such. Also, it does not take the traditional approach of reviewing causes, presentation and management of a particular condition. Of course there is nothing wrong with that but this book allows another dimension of learning, reference and education and it does it well.
