The fifth edition of this superb book on headache is notable for its incorporation of large amounts of information appearing during the past decade. It is a remarkable compendium of knowledge for such a brief volume, and the author, after presenting large amounts of data (eg, the pathophysiology of migraine), frequently provides helpful personal evaluations of the "state of the art" of each topic. Theoretical and practical aspects of headache are treated with equal thoroughness, and each chapter is provided with particularly valuable voluminous references. An additional virtue of the book is its readability; Dr Lance writes gracefully and enhances the subject with frequent references to his own extensive scientific and clinical experience. If one is to choose a single volume from the many books on headache, this one, written by one of the leaders in the field, is it.
