Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Deborah L. Dubois
This series offers a thorough explanation of each disease or disorder, giving a basic definition; a discussion of the causes, symptoms, and treatments; a description of living with the disease; and ideas of future treatment and diagnoses. Each volume lists source notes and organizations to contact. A glossary, index, and ideas for further reading are also included. The color photographs and sidebars help to make the information in the dense text more easily understood, and personal stories provide insight into how individuals deal with their disease. In Epilepsy, different types of seizures and the varied triggers are explained. The many personal stories give hope to those who have been diagnosed with epilepsy, and the historical perspective on diagnosis and treatment show how far we have come in the medical field. In MRSA, details are given on how the infection is contracted, showing how many are at risk. Prevention strategies are shared, not only for medical personnel but also for the average person. These volumes will be helpful to students doing research and to those diagnosed with the disease who are looking for a better understanding. Reviewer: Deborah L. Dubois
