Addressed to the general public, this book is intended to give a comprehensive review of the nature and treatment of one of civilized man's commonest complaints. The mechanism which produces headache is outlined, and headaches from specific causes, such as brain tumor, high blood pressure, sinus disease, ocular pathology, and migraine, are discussed. This volume has no value to the ophthalmologist except in recommending it to patients who have an interest in a better understanding of their condition, especially those suffering from migraine. The authors are well known for their numerous researches in pain, especially headaches, and the book admirably fulfills its purpose.
