Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two books aim to help migraine sufferers regain control of their lives. Each achieves this goal by thoroughly discussing the diagnosis, treatment, and impact of environmental factors and lifestyle on migraines, and each combines input from medical professionals with a readable style. Written by two experienced journalists in the health field in conjunction with The American Council on Headache Education, Migraine: The Complete Guide covers topics not found in Managing Your Migraine: migraine demographics, migraine in men and children, and coping with family, school, office, traveling, and health insurance. The strength of Managing Your Migraine lies in its emphasis on research and the provision of a thorough bibliography. The citations are primarily from professional books and journals published between 1987 and 1992. Burks, who has a master's in counseling, encourages a continuous process of keeping up with the latest research and promotes the use of libraries, health agencies, and periodical subscriptions to do so. She also places a greater emphasis on diet, devoting two chapters to the topic, with appendixes of recipes and food charts. While both books discuss the latest drug, Imitrex, Burks provides more practical information for its use and details potential problems caused by nonmigraine drugs. With 23 million Americans suffering from migraines, including 20 percent of all U.S. women, there is room for both these reasonably priced books in all public and consumer health education libraries.-Mary Prottsman, Medical Lib., Enterprise, Ala.
