This pocket-sized book deals wisely and critically with one of the most vexing therapeutic problems in clinical medicine, the treatment of the patient with migraine. Its soundness and compassion reflect the author's wide experience with the disorder. In addition to containing an accurate and acute analysis of the coming and going of various drugs and programs for treating migraine, this book contains a number of interesting and little known historical facts about the disease. Anyone who has ever had a headache or who has to treat patients with headaches will profit by careful study of the book.
The price of this book, $4 for a small volume, may put it out of the range of many who should have it. Fifteen years ago a book of this size might have cost a dollar.
