Review quote

"This book, in its chapters in a short comprehensive way provideds a practical guidance, is intended for the general physician and general pediatrician to diagnose and manage patients with epilepsy as well as other problems associated to epilipsy. Since many general hospitals and community health centers do not have a trained neurologist, this book will be of great help to general practitioners." --Dr. Saad Al Shahwan, Riyadh Armed Forces Hospital, 1998
