I have this book in the house and will read it after reading another book on natural healing of seizures. Reviewer #2, how can I get in contact with you? My name is Peter <>

This book was an excellent overview to the experience of epilepsy, and the different effects and options of treatment. The description firsthand of how the seizures affected the author, and also the side effects of conventional treatment were invaluable to me, as I was reading up ob the subject after my dog was diagnosed as being epileptic.
I particularly appreciated the fact that all treatment options discussed were referenced, and included a description of how it worked, possible side effects, and how it felt to the person receiving the treatment.
I would highly recommend that all newly diagnosed epileptics read this book before deciding on a treatment plan.
