From the reviews of the second edition:
“Neurologists, internists, and primary care providers are the intended audience. … Physicians who use AEDs for nonepilepsy indications, such as pain management, also will find this a valuable resource. … This book fills an important niche. … It is certainly a welcome entry for all neurologists who are involved in caring for patients with epilepsy and struggle with providing the best treatment options for this difficult condition. I fully recommend this book to anyone caring for patients with epilepsy.” (Raj D. Sheth, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2013)
