“A useful addition to the bookshelf and in particular to that of speciality trainees (urology or paediatric surgery) who may be undergoing exit exams, due to the pictorial illustrations which may assist with viva practice.” (Neil Featherstone, urologynews,, May, 1, 2018)

“This textbook is easy to read and well-illustrated. Each chapter displays many photographs and hand drawn figures. All paediatricians and urologists involved in paediatric surgery will be satisfied with this excellent work, which can be also recommended to trainees.” (European Urology Today, Vol. 29 (4), August-September, 2017)

“It encompasses urological development, congenital and acquired problems, most of which are very specific to childhood, renal tumors of childhood, and reaches into areas of pediatric general surgery and gynecology that are proximate to the urological system. … This is a large, well done book that is also a fast and definitive read on all things related to childhood urology. Those looking to get acquainted with these topics or for a rapid, concise review will find this book valuable.” (Robert M. Arensman, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2017)
