From the reviews:
“This monograph covers the main clinical, diagnostic, therapeutic, and prognostic features of the genetic generalized epilepsy (GGE) syndromes in early childhood through adulthood. … this book perfect for busy residents, pediatricians, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and allied healthcare professionals interested in GGE. … it is recommended to physicians in training and busy clinicians who are interested in learning the intricacies of common syndromes to avoid the pitfalls of ‘lumping’ patients with generalized seizures under the rubric of idiopathic generalized epilepsy.” (William Tatum, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2013)
