Headache medicine is the bread and butter of neurological outpatient practice. There have been significant advances in the field of headache in the recent years. While majority of headache situations encountered in clinical practice fit into well recognised pigeon holes, from time to time they pose diagnostic challenges. Modern thinking has been continuously evolving as for the pathophysiological mechanisms behind headache disorders. Moreover, many of the diagnosed categories need expertise and monitoring for optimal therapeutic results.

This book Edited by K Ravishankar, Randolf W Evans and Shuu-Jiun Wang is very relevant to the modern practice of headache medicine. Over 50 internationally recognized authors have participated in this effort. Divided in five sections, the book takes us through various aspects of primary and secondary headaches, focusing then on special situations like headaches in children, elderly, women, pregnancy etc. Lastly, the deliberations shift to headaches in Asia and contemporary and alternative treatments, which are only rarely evaluated in allopathic expositions. The forte of this book is the format. Written in a question and answers format, it directly addresses the concerns of the treating physicians. The areas discussed range from simple practical issues like drug timings and doses to the complicated drug mechanisms, diagnostic derivations and newer thinking processes in the field.

Written by experts in the field, this book covers a lot in simple language and the authors have managed to keep the volume small in spite of packing much information, a must for a daily use table book. I have no doubt that this book will be useful to all who deal with headaches in their clinical practice; students of neurology, neurologists, psychiatrists and physicians. This book is a definite value addition to their work tables.
