Reviewed by: James H., Cardiff, who has epilepsy himself
The book contains a variety of related issues to epilepsy – from what it is, to the medical facts, to the daily implications of living with epilepsy.
The book was written in a manner which was easy to understand. The definition of epilepsy which was given in the introduction was simple, but explained a lot and the book contained some useful tips in regards to the subjects which were raised.
It was also interesting for me to look at a wider scope of the epilepsy which exists, to see how other people can be affected in various ways.
A relative who read the book said that she found the book interesting especially with regards to some of the issues related to my experience of epilepsy.
I would give the book top marks & will be interested enough to buy myself a copy when it becomes available.
