Review

"Well written and fascinating to read. This fine book takes a large step in...contributing to the only slowly dawning awareness of the general public, and the health workers too, of the significance of chronic illness." --Anselm Strauss, University of California, San Francisco "For anyone who would like to 'get inside' the experience of having epilepsy, this book is probably as close as one can come." --Epilepsia "In dispelling the notion that 'the person is the illness,' these interviews with 80 individuals reveal that those suffering from epilepsy have learned to accept it as merely another facet of their lives. A valuable contribution for those with epilepsy, for their family and friends, for medical personnel, and for the general public." --Booklist "...carefully outlined and clearly written... Those affected by chronic conditions may find the book most helpful... Family and helping professionals may discover new insights... Social scientists, especially those interested in chronic illnesses, will benefit from the research conclusions and suggestions for further research." --Medical Anthropology Quarterly "It represents an important advance in the medical sociology literature as well as a contribution to qualitative sociology. I think that the book should become a contemporary classic in medical sociology." --Qualitative Sociology "...an important contribution... In focusing on what it is like to have epilepsy in this society, Schneider and Conrad have reversed an earlier concern for the medicalization of deviance, opting in this work for an understanding of the stigmatization of illness." --Contemporary Sociology
