Media reviews
...should be regarded, therefore, as a companion to the first edition rather than a revision. Together, the two volumes represent the largest series of growth data ever assembled...should serve as an excellent resource for the reader who is interested in comparative studies of growth. In addition to the text and numerous easy-to-read figures, there is an appendix of 82 tables, which present both the means and the standard deviations of various anthropometric measures and indices, and an exhaustive list of references to other growth studies. Linda S. Adair, American Scientist "...far more than a compilation of data, tables and an extensive bibliography. The implications of this data have carefully been considered and discussed, including the influence of stature, obesity and fat-patterning on chronic disease in adults. It is fascinating reading, practical and applicable to the developing and developed worlds. It should serve as an essential text and guide to those working in the fields of maternal and child health, infant and pre-school nutrition, and the health of the adolescent. It is of particular interest for those who plan to conduct different kinds of growth studies and surveys, as well as those who are interested in the public health implication of measuring growth and maturation in population groups." Ella Haddad, Journal of Nutrition Education
