What People are Saying About This
"Certainly, I was glad of Schoenen's book as a concise package of the existing evidence on the relationship between migraine and other disorders." (ACNR, 1 March 2012)
"This excellent and concise book is dedicated to clinicians involved in the care of patients suffering from migraine ... I recommend this excellent and concise book not only to clinicians interested in migraine but also to medical practitioners, residents in neurology, cardiology, psychiatry, child psychiatry, internal medicine, anesthesiology, general practitioners, and medical students as an opportunity to get a better knowledge of the topic." (J Headache Pain, 1 October 2011)
"In conclusion, this thin volume is well worth its price and is highly recommended for both general practitioners, adult and pediatric neurologists, including those beginning their careers and hone their skills. It provides a practical approach to the recognition and management of several aspects of migraine that would be useful for a range of specialties." (Epilepsy & Behavior, 2011)
"I highly recommend this book and strongly agree with the last sentence of its preface: "most importantly, we hope that this book will inform your clinical-decision making and be of value to you, your patients, and...that it will also be fun reading it". Indeed it was." (The Lancet Neurology, 1 July 2011)
