I had to read this book for work and it was ok. Informative and boring.

easy to understand
I read this book as a requirement for my Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) and found it to be informative and straightforward. The text thoroughly and frequently reviews key concepts and the principles of neonatal resuscitation, while building on the foundations of NRP. Overall, the book was easy to read and well-structured.

Was this book entirely a waste of time? No. It contains content that is useful for healthcare providers, especially those working with neonates.

This textbook teaches the basics of neonatal resuscitation.

The layout reminds me of the old Reader's Digest magazines for some reason. The book has huge margins perfect for taking notes (I used a lot of post-it notes, they're the perfect size). The text is larger font and easy to read.

I enjoyed this book as a practical guide, and I

This is actually easy to read, even for those who don't have a medical background (google is your friend when you don't understand some words). Apparently the British method around neonatal resuscitation is better, at least according to the at home midwifery world.

Very clear presentation of information. The accompanying DVD is excellent as well.

A solid 4 stars. Excellent content but boring, albeit necessary. I would have rated it higher had it prepared me a bit better for the chapter exams.

Clear and concise. It does a great job of explaining the concepts, but it won't be my new coffee table book or anything. ;)
