Abstract

The Everyday Practice Series is edited by Dr. Harlow Brooks, and as its title indicates it is designed for daily use by practitioners. The series already includes the subjects of posture, feeding, tropical medicine, burns and backache, reported by eminent clinicians. This newest subject, headache, has been prepared by Dr. Robey, a prominent Boston consultant and clinical professor of medicine in Harvard University. Dr. Robey employs a descriptive, historical and statistical method in dealing with this material which results in a large amount of information that comprehensively includes but does not explicitly analyze or deal critically with a great many contributions on the subject of headache.

The volume is composed of an extensive collection of data on the common signs and symptoms of headache arranged in reference to the disease entities in which this condition is found. The main groups are constitutional, renal, infectious, hypertensive, cardiac, digestive and neurologic diseases.
