This book might have been a good, rudimentary resource when it was published, but since it's now 10 years old, it's rather dated, especially as related to the meds it discusses, and most of its information can undoubtedly be found online rather easily. Nonetheless, I learned some things from this book and was happy I read it. The book focused, of course, on migraine headaches, as well as tension and cluster headaches. It mentioned a few other more minor headaches, but just barely, and it didn't mention at all the head pain that I'm afflicted with, trigeminal neuralgia, perhaps because so few people have it. I don't know. I found it interesting that the author asserted that cluster headaches are the most painful condition known to mankind and are considered the "suicide" disease. It's interesting, because I have books that say the same thing about trigeminal neuralgia and I've read many articles that agree and even Wikipedia writes that TN is considered to be the "suicide disease." So who's right? I guess it doesn't matter that much. Both are considerably bad. And ironically, since I've been officially diagnosed with both, I guess I'm doubly suicidal, right?

This book had some good tips and had some good forms in it. It had some good tips for dealing with doctors and insurance companies and I appreciated that. As I wrote, the meds info is outdated, but the book can't help that. My primary complaint, though, is that even back then, shouldn't people with serious headaches and migraines have researched and known a lot of this basic information? This book is so basically rudimentary that I was shocked that people even had to know most of this stuff. Yet the author published questions and answers sent in by people which simply shocked me. Most were unbelievably ignorant. People, it's called the Internet. Research. Good book though. Something to use as a starter if you know nothing about serious headaches. Something to discard if you do. Moderately recommended for the current times. ( )
