I am an EEG technologist, and life long student of neurology. I found this book a fairly easy read based on pacing and structure, but I am not so sure that people who do not have a good foundation in the life sciences, let alone neurology, will have such an easy go of it.
Never the less, I strongly encourage those unfortunate parents to take a crack at reading this book, and taking notes to bring to the neurologist of their child.
