[In Context] The importance of aetiology in epilepsy

Epilepsy is a very complex disorder with many seizure types, syndromes, and defined causes. Major textbooks are typically organised around syndromes, but The Causes of Epilepsy takes a different approach and focuses on various causes. This 2·5 kg book is crammed with information: 787 pages are separated into 101 chapters written by 165 authors from 21 countries. Most of the authors are world experts on the subject, and I admire the energy and professional network required to assemble this impressive work.
