‘A mine of treasures, a source of visions, a microcosm of human experience and suffering, the philosopher’s stone: Migraineis a remarkable achievement’ Sunday Telegraph Migraine is an age-old – the first recorded instances date back over two thousand years – and often debilitating condition, affecting a ‘substantial minority’ of the population across the globe. In this book, 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. ‘It delves into the workings of the brain with brilliant complexity, and should be required reading for migraine sufferers or those with an intellectual bent’ Cosmopolitan ‘Migraineis full of those wondrous insights that have made Oliver Sacks the most accessible and at the same time the most magisterial of doctors’ Anita Brookner, Spectator ‘Written with Sacks’s customary insight and grace, no book has helped me understand more about the mind-body connection’ Hilary Mantel, Mail on Sunday
