To most of us epilepsy means dramatic and uncontrolled convulsions. The reality is more complex and less alarming. To dispel the mystery and to provide real help, two leading epilepsy specialists have written this succinct guide. Explaining that epilepsy is a symptom not a disease, they take you through the types and causes of epileptic seizure, giving special emphasis to the options for treatment and discussing the latest advances in drug therapy. Their conclusion is that epilepsy may be common, but usually gets better and there are excellent ways of controlling it.

a clear, concise and well organised introductory book to epilepsy - definition, diagnosis, therapies and impact on everyday life. Good as a starting point towards understanding better what epilepsy is and how it affects the patient's life and attitude.
