    Headache Through the Ages  explores how "headache" has been perceived through time in literature, art history, and anecdotal material.
  • Heal Your Headache

    This is a thought-provoking book. Dr. Buchholz makes some excellent points, but readers should remember that he's writing about his hypotheses rather than blindly accepting everything written in any book.
  • Living Well with Migraine Disease and Headaches
    Living Well with Migraine Disease and Headaches
    From definitions of types of Migraines and headaches to commonly used medications in the treatment of Migraines and headache diseases, to self-advocacy and dealing with family issues, this book has it all.

    Managing Migraine: A Healthcare Professional's Guide to Collaborative Migraine Care

  • The Migraine Relief Guide
    The Migraine Relief Guide
    Your $37 would be better spent on two or three paperback Migraine and headache books.
  • Migraines Managed
    Two words can summarize this book: guts and greed.
  • No More Migraine Review
    No More Migraine

  • Pain the Fifth Vital Sign
    Pain — the Fifth Vital Sign
    How do we explain "how much" pain we're experiencing in a way that's universally understood? As headache and Migraine patients we can absolutely relate. Jackson explores pain as the "Fifth Vital Sign," as measurable as temperature, blood pressure, heart beat, and respiration.
  • Understanding Migraine and Other Headaches
    Understanding Migraine and Other Headaches
    Written "for general readers," the book is, "a comprehensive overview of causes, diagnoses, and treatments" written in a logical, easy flowing style.
  • You Can Heal Your Life
    You Can Heal Your Life
    Reviewed at the request of a forum member, this book by Louise L Hay has one good thing going for it and a lot of MISinformation.
