The modern explosion of knowledge in neurology has influenced the study and treatment of no disorder more than epilepsy. When I was in medical training, one could easily count on one hand all of the major drugs used to treat seizures.
Today, with the development of so many new antiepileptics, it is no longer feasible even to list all of these drugs on one slide. Such a vast amount of new information makes it particularly important for the practitioner, either the specialist or the generalist, to have access to a handy, up-to-date reference on epilepsy treatment. The delightful new handbook by Simon Shorvan provides just such a resource. This is an excellent, well-written, and practical handbook for the comprehensive treatment of epilepsy in both adults and children by one of the leading figures in clinical epilepsy today. In his Handbook of Epilepsy Treatment, Shorvon personally distills considerable information and knowledge from a much larger, multiauthored, comprehensive reference work that he coedited. His new book is concise (at just under 250 pages), easy to read, and nicely supplemented with tables, graphs, and illustrations. It succeeds in conveying the current state of epilepsy treatment, at the beginning of the twentyfirst century, in a comfortably accessible format.
Shorvon provides objective, evidence-based information and balances his stylish narrative with personal advice. The practices he promotes reflect the first-class epilepsy care provided at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen Square, London, with which he is most familiar. He effectively blends his own personal views with the enormous amount of (sometimes confusing and even conflicting) data available in the medical literature. The book begins with a section on basics, such as the diagnosis and classification of epilepsy. It then reviews the acquired, hereditary, and genetic causes of epilepsy before turning to the major focus of the book, treatment. All aspFrom the Publisher:
This is a single-author book, based upon the multi-author Treatment of Epilepsy, but much shorter. There have been many recent advances in treatment (new drugs, new investigations, novel surgical approaches) and the book is thoroughly up-to-date; a practical text, very much for clinical usage rather than a reference work, addressing all the common problems encountered in clinical practice.
