This is a book on the psychiatry and psychology of epilepsy, written mostly by neurologists for neurologists and epileptologists. Psychiatrists would benefit as well, but other specialists and generalists will be overwhelmed with this information. It also is North Americanocentric; physicians on other continents may have different patient populations. This second edition has been improved and certainly is comprehensive for the topic it covers. Chapters integrate well. There are no serious overlaps. Chapters 10 and higher get very detailed.
