From the reviews:
"Prof. Oestreich's goal was to share with the reader the expertise he has gained over many years of studying the growing skeleton. This primer is intended to acquaint the reader with all the conundrums that must be learnt and acquired before gaining expert diagnostic skill in this field. ... Given its price and the valuable information to be found in it, this book is warmly recommended for the libraries of radiology departments and the property of trainees in radiology and orthopaedics." (Giampiero Beluffi, La Radiologia Medica, Vol. 113, 2008)

His book describes the various processes by which children's bones grow, the parts of the bones which grow and what happens when the processes go awry. ... this is a lovely book that would be well received in any department of paediatric or musculoskeletal radiology. I could wish that every trainee would read this ... ." (Maeve McPhillips, RAD Magazine, January, 2009)"The book combines a brief review of the principles of bone growth with a more detailed discussion of how these principles apply to specific abnormalities of growing bone. ...
