Reviews

“This book, written and edited by ‘clinicians for clinicians’ is an outstanding contribution to the neuropsychiatric literature and, at this point, is the essential reference for anyone who wants to learn about the psychiatric complications of epilepsy. … This is a wonderful and informative book on the neuropsychiatric complications of epilepsy and, at this point, the standard on this topic. It contains the most up-to-date information on the neuropsychiatry of epilepsy.” (Michael Joel Schrift, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2016)
