I've had debilitating migraines for over 30 years and am well used to revolving my life around the care and management of The Headache. Like many other migraineuers, I have vast collections of information on management of The Headache. This book is one of the most valuable resources I have found for many reasons. The audio version is pitch-perfect to listen to even during a migraine - perhaps not the most severe one, when even a whisper sounds like a shout, but one when some sound can be tolerated, and may soothe. The narrator's voice is perfect, and for me, hearing about The Headache, even on repeated listenings, was soothing.
This book is a sort of history of migraine. The author's personal migraine history is woven throughout other historical references to migraine.
I thought I had learned every way to manage my headaches, but I learned much from this little book.
It is not just a book of daily lifestyle headache management, but also a bit of philosophical outlook for the migraineur and those in their lives.
I found the audio version so helpful, I also ordered the print version and passed it along to my mother, who does not suffer migraine, so that she might understand why I "flee from the light".
If you have migraines, or know someone who does and you want to know more about what a migraine is (it is NOT a "really bad headache"), buy this book. The narration is great, and the book is very well-written and just the right length. You will not regret the purchase.

I learned lots of interesting new facts about migraines. He talks about contemporary thoughts from doctors, and ancient wisdom from long ago. It's full of compassion, information and education . If you want validation that others know your pain during a migraine, this book describes it.
