Summary

The best-selling author of Awakenings, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Musicophilia

Migraine is an age-old - the first recorded instances date back over 2,000 years - and often debilitating condition affecting a 'substantial minority' of the population across the globe. In Migraine, Oliver Sacks offers at once a medical account of its occurrence and management; an exploration of its physical, physiological, and psychological underpinnings and consequences; and a meditation on the nature and experience of health and illness.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

Critic reviews

"A mine of treasures, a source of visions, a microcosm of human experience and suffering, the philosopher's stone: Migraine is a remarkable achievement." (Sunday Telegraph)
