Migraine is an age-old - the first recorded instances date back 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.

Industry Reviews

'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

'It delves into the workings of the brain with brilliant complexity, and should be required reading for migraine sufferers or those with an intellectual heart.' Cosmopolitan

Oliver Sacks

About the Author


Oliver Sacks, M.D. is a physician, a best-selling author, and a professor of neurology at the NYU School of Medicine. The New York Times has referred to him as “the poet laureate of medicine.”

He is best known for his collections of neurological case histories, including The Man who Mistook his Wife for a Hat, Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain and An Anthropologist on Mars. Awakenings, his book about a group of patients who had survived the great encephalitis lethargica epidemic of the early twentieth century, inspired the 1990 Academy Award-nominated feature film starring Robert De Niro and Robin Williams.

Dr. Sacks is a frequent contributor to the New Yorker and the New York Review of Books.
