Very cool new epilepsy poetry book

There's a very cool new book of poetry out by Maggie Mendus. It's called "Broken Consciousness" Reflections of an Epileptic.

I just finished reading it and as the reviews say: "Hauntingly accurate descriptions written from the patient perspective capture the true emotions evoked by epilesy. Conveying frustration, fear, strength, hope and courage, this is a must read for anyone touched by epilepsy, whether patient, family, friend or health care professional. After working with epilepsy patients for years, I see how these poems will launch our perspective and understanding into a new light. Brilliant and insightful. A must read!"
