"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
