Beschrijving
'A mine of treasures, a source of visions, a microcosm of human experience and suffering, the philosopher's stone: Migraine is 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 Migraine, 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.
Review
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 * Migraine is 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 * 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 *
