This book is the product of 12 authors in various fields of medicine who have had wide experience in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with headache. Each author discusses the problem of headache from the standpoint of his specialty. There is some duplication in the text, for each author has been permitted to express his own viewpoint, but this seems to add to, rather than detract from, the volume. While the authors state in the preface that the book is written for the practicing physician, it is so comprehensive in its scope that physicians in all fields of medicine should find it interesting reading. Throughout the book, the basic mechanisms involved in the production of headache and head pain and the correction of these disturbances are stressed. The book has full chapters on mechanisms of headache; diagnostic principles and methods; principles of pharmacotherapy; the eyes, ears, nose, and throat
