This is the definitive textbook about seizures and epilepsy. It is a most wonderful book, organized sensibly, written consistently and well. The very large three-volume set has 169 chapters contributed by more than 200 experts. Most people will use it as a reference source like an encyclopedia, and they will find it well suited to that purpose. The text is organized into 12 logical topic groups, and the index (featured only in the last volume) is detailed, lucid, and convenient.
