From the book reviews:

"This small hardback book punches well above its weight and gives a detailed review of pediatric epilepsy surgery. The Advances section has a good overview of the mechanism of epileptogenesis in the developing brain, which covers much of the animal work that has been undertaken in this area of research. ... I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about pediatric epilepsy surgery-both pediatricians and surgeons." (Paul Chumas, Acta Neurochirurgica, Vol. 156 (10), October, 2014)

"This volume in the Advances and Technical Standards in Neurosurgery series focuses on research, imaging, and treatment for children with medically uncontrollable seizures. ... this volume is a nice precis of current problems, evaluation, and treatment. ... It will bring readers up to date on the topic and provide a nice introduction to and primer on this highly specialized surgery, which might be beneficial for the approximately million children afflicted with medically uncontrolled epilepsy in Europe and the United States." (Robert M. Arensman, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2013)
