"It will end up being the most well read book you own and every keto home should have one. My copy went everywhere with me when Matthew was on the diet and I can't recommend it highly enough."-Emma Williams, CEO/Founder - Matthew's Friends Charity - Dietary Treatments for Epilepsy - GLOBAL. Director - Matthew's Friends Clinics Ltd for Ketogenic Dietary Therapies
Praise for the Fourth Edition:
"While this is a profoundly rigorous diet, with potentially serious side effects, Freeman, Kossoff, et al. discuss every facet of the process with clarity and professionally restrained optimism. Under proper guidance and with real dedication, this diet may be the path to recovery for children with difficult-to-control seizures." Kirkus Reports
"A 'must'...Very highly recommended as a top alternative to medication for kids with epilepsy." The Midwest Book Review
"This book is easy to read... Anecdotes from families that have used the ketogenic diet are interspersed throughout the chapters and make the...text more interesting, and bring the diet to life... This book is highly recommended for pediatric consumer health libraries." CAPHIS Consumer Connections
"If we had had the information in this book fifteen months earlier, a vast majority of Charlie's $100,000 of medical, surgical, and drug treatment would not have been necessary, a vast majority of Charlie's seizures would not have occurred." From the Foreword by Jim Abrahams, Director, The Charlie Foundation to Help Cure Pediatric Epilepsy(20110101) --Emma Williams, CEO/Founder - Matthew's Friends Charity - Dietary Treatments for Epilepsy

The book even covers the newer, potentially more palatable versions of the KD like the Modified Atkins and the MCT Ketogenic Diet, giving the reader additional options to help fit this dietary approach into his or her lifestyle.
It turned out that this book CHANGED OUR LIVES!!!! I have not looked back since buying it! My son was diagnosed with Lennox Gastaut Seizure Disorder. Doctors reacted like the mere diagnosis was the kiss of death. I am here to tell you that if the Ketogenic Diet can work for my son, who had over 100 seizures a day and constant seizure activity during sleep, it has the potential to work for anyone! Just remember that since it is not a drug, doctors do not promote it (pharmaceutical companies pay for their vacations, remember!)......My son was formerly on 6 meds with no end to seizures in sight. He is now on the diet and has only one med left to be weaned from. The diet had immediate and amazing results!

It is one of the few sources that I have read that gave me a step by step approach to using the diet.
It does not explain the physiological basis for using the ketogenic diet. That is not a criticism. The
comment is merely establishing the boundary of the knowledge John Freeman is imparting through
this specific book.
I highly recommend purchasing this book, not just for parents of kids with epilepsy but for people
who wish to adopt the ketogenic diet for other reasons (ie: obesity etc).
