"This book is recommended for any clinician who treats patients with epilepsy. It will also be very useful for medical students and house officers. I highly recommend this book to clinicians and students who want to quickly learn many different aspects of epilepsy,
especially its diagnosis and treatment, as well as counseling for patients." --Epilepsy and Behavior
