The Mini Neurology Series Volume 1: Migraine
In a world of big scientific books on headache and migraine there is a plea for a smaller book. This is it! A short but rather complete book on the definition of migraine, the lifestyle to live to have fewer attacks, and acute and preventive therapy of migraine. Throw in a short chapter on one of the most important subjects on migraine–medication overuse headache, and comments on sinus headache and allergy headache and you’ve got it…the first book in the Mini Neurology Series, on Migraine.
