OK, so I was intrigued: Just how controversial can a book about migraine be? Over the years I've bought many books on the subject with limited results and I was about to discover that many of the pearls of wisdom that one doc after the other stated or those oft repeated truisms on websites simply don't hold true after all. Science has shown that very different processes are at play. The author takes you through EVERYTHING explaining and systematically evaluating things one by one by looking at the facts. It is all backed by science and validated, so it's not just someone's subjective opinion. It is also logical. He invites you to think things through and gives you all the tools you need. This makes the book very encouraging and empowering.
There is even an explanation of neuroscience that anyone can understand. Analogies, case studies, examples and stories are peppered through the book. One of my favourites was his analogy to explain cortical spreading depression (I don't want to give it away here.) So I often found myself reading for much longer than usual. The stories are so entertaining occasionally even making me laugh out loud.
Part 1 outlines the problem and it is a very thorough essay about migraine but also all the social, economic and health consequences.
Part 2 answers the following questions:
What's going on in the brain during a migraine attack?
What happens in between that leads to attacks?
Why does migraine have so many comorbidities?
Why is it that so many people don't have migraine despite having the genetic disposition?
How is it possible that so many treatments and therapies are somewhat effective in migraine even if they have nothing in common?
What is the placebo effect?

As a chronic migraine sufferer l found this book really helpful.
The main strength of it for me was the advice the writer gave in supporting yourself mentally as a regular sufferer of pain. The writer recognises the temptation to give into the condition and reach a state of "learned helplessness" but urges one not to give in. This is not done in a hectoring way but in a supportive manner.
There is also lots of advice on medical support.
I would urge all migraine sufferers to read it.

I think Molly has covered what is inside this book very well so I won't go into that. All I can say is that if you are a migraineur and have scoured the Internet and books for answers then be prepared for a very different spin on the causes and treatment all written in a very entertaining fashion to keep you turning the pages. You may or may not agree with the authors theories but each explanation is backed up with science. A must for migraneurs!

THIS BOOK IS UTTERLY BRILLIANT. It provides the answers I've been waiting for nearly all my life, having suffered with migraine since 19, which is nearly 40 years; chronically since my 30s with attacks for up to 20 out of 30 days a month. It brings together all the elements I have suspected as contributory factors, but which I have never been able to marshal into a coherent hypothesis in order to tackle the disorder head-on (pardon the pun). The book provides an armoury of 'weapons' with which to protect and heal oneself, including neurofeedback (with which I was already being helped before reading the book). It plugs all the gaps in my understanding of HOW AND WHY people change from being episodic migraine sufferers to chronic sufferers: a horrible feedback loop in itself, which Martin Brink has enabled me to break. The book needs to be read from beginning to end with no jumping to the bits which you might think will provide a quick fix - UNDERSTANDING WHAT'S HAPPING IN THE MIGRAINE BRAIN is the key to ending the misery and tyranny of migraine. Using the 'weapons" takes time, patience and some money too (it IS worth it in order to get back to good health). Please read this book if you are a migraineur yourself or you have a loved one who is suffering. There is no need for further suffering now.

After reading many other books on migraine that didn't really have any answers, I bought this thinking 'I'll try anything'. Finally, I can see some sense in what is going on. There isn't one quick and easy answer in this book; there is a way through the minefield of migraine, though. And a better understanding of the real causes can only help the recovery.
If you've got migraines that don't respond to 'conventional' treatments, this book will help you understand why. And figure out where to go and what to do next.
