Reviews - What do customers think about Epilepsy: 199 Answers: A Doctor Responds to His Patients' Questions?

Don't bother if you're above a fourth-grade reading level.  May 27, 2005
Not recommended. The information given is ridiculously basic, and can be provided in a single chapter of Seized by Eve LaPlante or Partial Seizure Disorders by Mitzi Waltz, both highly superior and actually informative books. I can't figure out if Wilner's condescending by nature, or if he's just overcompensating for the anticipated lowest common denominator.

I'll give it two stars instead of one simply because someone out there may genuinely not know things this basic - but if you've been diagnosed with epilepsy, your doctor probably told you more about your disorder in the first five minutes of the appointment than you'll get in this entire book.
 
Great Resource for The Basics  Apr 7, 2001
Readers will find this book to be very helpful, as it spells out in very simplistic terms the answers to the questions that they may or may not have thought of yet (definitions, clarifications, listings of medicines). It is a quick read as it is broken down into questions with the corresponding answers. This is a great resource for obtaining the basics on epilepsy, especially for a newly diagnosed patient. It also contains contact information for national organizations.

What a fantastic resource!  Apr 2, 1999
I am so impressed with the book because it answers in very plain english, the questions a person needs to know first-off when diagnosed. The questions address not only the concerns of a person with epilepsy, but it also addresses issues that family members might want to know. The Health Record is a great way to help patients help themselves get more out of their doctor visits. The Drug and Medical Information lists important numbers of drug companies so that a person can obtain more information about the drugs they take. The resource guide is worth the book alone as it lists support groups, organizations, comprehensive epilepsy centers, summer camps, and other important contacts not just nation-wide, but internationally. Knowledge points the way to a better diagnosis with epilepsy and what questions this book doesn't address, it guides you to sources that will answer the rest.
