Praise for previous editions:

‘Treatment of Epilepsy is a vital contribution to the field. The book’s primary focus is on the medical and surgical evaluation and treatment of the disease. Experts around the globe who have made seminal contributions to the treatment of epilepsy have contributed to the book, which preserves its flow and focus extremely well. ‘… ‘This book is highly recommended’ … ‘for anybody who is involved in the evaluation and medical care of patients with epilepsy.’  (NEJM, February 2005)

“I would highly recommend The Treatment of Epilepsy for neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, pediatricians, and internists, as well as nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, and others who are interested in delving into the details of the treatment of epilepsy.” (Epilepsy & Behavior, 6 October 2010)About the Author
