`Review from previous edition " is great to have all key topics located in one reference guide. It will be particularly useful for those requiring a recent review of the evidence base from which to base the updating of clinical practice or further research."' British Journal of Hospital Medicine `"...a first-rate reference source for researcher and field workers to support and challenge them in developmental pediatric exercise science and medicine."' Journal of Sports Science and Medicine `"...the editors have more than adequately achieved their objectives, succeeding in presenting complex scientific material in an accessible way for research scientists and medical practitioners...Truly a comprehensive reference work and a must have text for all scientists involved in exercise research and all clinicians caring for children and adolescents participating in physical activity, exercise, or sport."'
