Psychiatric Issues in Epilepsy: A Practical Guide to Diagnosis and Treatment is the second edition of a successful guide to the comorbid behavior illnesses that are common in people with epilepsy. The presence of behavioral abnormalities in epilepsy has been long identified, but little emphasis or structure have been provided to the problem addressed by this book.
This reference text is a vastly reconfigured version of the 2001 edition. There are good reasons for this significant change, due to greater information on the many behavioral illnesses associated with epilepsy. The second edition is much larger, now at 547 pages. This textual increase arises partly from several newer sections and partly from more extensive coverage within established chapters.
