Reviews


"Handbook of Epilepsy Treatment is truly what the title promises: a very practice-oriented and useful handbook about the treatment of epilepsy. The updated edition is helpful for residents, fellows, general practitioners, and epileptologists alike." (Epilepsy & Behavior, 2 March 2011)

"However, because antiepileptic drugs are frequently used off-label owing to difficulty in designing drug trials that meet Food and Drug Administration criteria for new indications, clinicians with familiarity in epilepsy treatment are likely to find the text and the insight of a seasoned practitioner a worthwhile addition to their libraries." (The Annals of Pharmacotherapy, 1 April 2011)

"Shorvon (neurology, U. College London, UK) presents a comprehensive yet concise text for neurologists on the various treatments of epilepsy, both medical and surgical and in adults and children." (Booknews, 1 February 2011)

"Handbook of Epilepsy Treatment is truly what the title promises: a very practice-oriented and useful handbook about the treatment of epilepsy. The updated edition is helpful for residents, fellows, general practitioners, and epileptologists alike." (Elsevier, 2 March 2011)

"This is a very clearly written and nicely produced book, which is one of the best medium sized books on epilepsy currently available. I've no doubt that there will be demand for a 4th edition in a few years time." (Encephalitis Society, 1 April 2011)

"The Handbook of Epilepsy Treatment provides a practical pathfinder for treating epilepsy based on published evidence and the authors 30 years of specialist clinical experience". (HPC Market Watch, 19 January 2011)Reviews of previous editions

"This delightful new handbook...is excellent, well written, and practical...by one of the leading figures in clinical epilepsy today...This stylishly written book serves its purpose admirably. It is a superb handbook that will be of immediate value as a reference or review on the treatment of epilepsy for the general neurologist as well as for the experienced epileptologist" (Annals of Neurology)

"...an excellent didactic tool and a very important hands-on text for all people involved in the care of epileptic patient. The factual information is easy to access, given the numerous tables that summarize the various sections, the comprehensive tabulation of data available, and the pharmacopeia appendix" (Child's Nervous System)
