'There are many useful chapters with much valuable information contained within. I would recommend this book to those who work in the field of ID as a must have.' Journal of Intellectual Disability Research
'This book ... adds the further dimension of an international perspective and detailed reviews of the evidence around major diseases and organ systems. ... easy to go from the text to the source if you wish. ... a readable book despite the complex nature of the topics covered ... a timely publication for the UK ... should have a place on the shelves of the new Public Health Bodies and General Practitioner Consortia.'
