Review Text

'This book provides a valuable overview of the field for those whose practice might bring them into contact with people with epilepsy. For those already working in the field, the book provides a helpful resume of those areas that complement this particular specialism.' - British Journal of Psychiatry

'[This book] provides a highly competent coverage of an important but all too often neglected issue. It is a volume that deserves to be widely read and consulted and the editors are to be congratulated on a job well done.' - British Journal of Health Psychology
