Migraine

by Oliver Sacks - £9.99  Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780330526142 | ISBN 10: 0330526146

Migraine is an age-old – the first recorded instances date back over two thousand years – and often debilitating condition, affecting a ‘substantial minority’ of the population across the globe. In this book, Oliver Sacks offers at once a medical account of its occurrence and management; an exploration of its physical, physiological, and psychological underpinnings and consequences; and a meditation on the nature and experience of health and illness.

"A mine of treasures, a source of visions, a microcosm of human experience and suffering, the philosopher’s stone: Migraine is a remarkable achievement"
(Sunday Telegraph)
"Migraine is full of those wondrous insights that have made Oliver Sacks the most accessible and at the same time the most magisterial of doctors"
(Anita Brookner, Spectator)
