2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Kate on July 22, 2010
Format: Hardcover
This book is a collection of research summaries on various issues related to narcolepsy. Most of the chapters are well written and offer concise, data-based research that can be applied to living with narcolepsy. A few of the chapters were more anectdotal commentaries, but I believe that this is because they are written about areas of the field that have almost no research data available. This book is a must read for any person with narcolepsy who enjoys having access to the scientific data. It is somewhat technical, but offers a tremendous amount of information that can be applied to living with this sleep disorder. I highly recommend it for narcoleptics who have an interest in understanding the research that has been completed so far in this field. I would also recommend it for any physician (GP, internal medicine, neurology, psychiatry, family practice, peds) who may encounter a patient with narcolepsy.
