Two important new guides are top picks for families facing special medical challenges. Nicholas LaRocca, Ph.D. & Rosalind Kalb, Ph.D.'s Multiple Sclerosis: Understanding The Cognitive Challenges (193260331X, $19.95) is the first to discuss MS-related cognitive dysfunction, tracing the emotional and social impact of these changes, medical evaluations of symptoms, and treatment and coping options alike. Chapters cite studies, discuss patient care and provider perception of physical disabilities, and emphasize approaches to cognitive rehabilitation. Shelley Peterman Schwarz's Parkinson's Disease: 300 Tips For Making Life Easier (1932603530, $16.95) appears in a second updated edition to provide techniques for daily living and coping. From tips to caregivers providing support to subject-oriented tips for quick reference and suggestions for task management, Parkinson's Disease: 300 Tips For Making Life Easier provides important resources for patients and their families. Stacey Chillemi and Blanca Vazquez, MD's Epilepsy And Pregnancy (193203158, $16.95) examines all the issues involved in the epileptic woman's pregnancy, from nutrition and special risks to mother and fetus to what to expect, the use of antiepileptic drugs during pregnancy, and more. While some advice is general to all pregnancy, it's the epilepsy-oriented health tips that make this a winner.
