Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Tonya F. Fuller, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a collection of patient descriptions of seizures and other symptoms related to epilepsy. It also includes practical recommendations on lifestyle and safety issues to patients with epilepsy.
Purpose: The purpose is to present descriptions of seizures and other symptoms related to the epileptic condition to patients with epilepsy, their family members and friends, and health care workers, and also to provide information to patients about safety and other lifestyle issues.
Audience: The intended audience includes patients with epilepsy and their families and friends. I also recommend this book to health care workers and employers of patients with epilepsy.
Features: The most outstanding feature of this book is that it is written in easy-to-understand English rather than complicated medical terminology. This enables patients to maintain the emotional aspects of their descriptions and makes the book easy to read. It is also refreshing for neurologists to read such thoughtful patient viewpoints.
Assessment: This book provides a unique view on a very complicated condition—epilepsy—from patients who, living with this condition, are the most credible sources. It is very practical and useful for patients, families, and friends as well as others who regularly interact with epilepsy patients, including employers and health care workers. I would recommend that all patients with epilepsy own a copy of this book. It should also be included in medical bookstores and medical and community libraries.

A sequel to Dr. Schacter's Brainstorms; Epilepsy in our Words (in which people who have seizures describe what it feels like). Here, family, friends, and co-workers describe what it's like to witness a seizure and how they deal with what they experience. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
