This book comprises a series of communications presented in 1976 at a postgraduate course given by the American Association for the Study of Headache at San Diego, Calif. The 19 papers covered a variety of disciplines, including general medicine, otolaryngology, neurosurgery, neurology, pediatrics, and ophthalmology.

It is always most difficult to present in coherent form lectures designed to be presented at a course without revising them for use in a textbook. Each lecture was planned to fulfill a different mission, but important discussions after each presentation are not included. It is particularly unfortunate that a more formal presentation by a psychiatrist is not part of this volume.

The general practitioner may find a problem in choosing from the various suggestions offered by the different authors, and there are repetitions and overlapping in certain areas. However, the book is full of practical approaches to the problem of the patient with headaches
