Publisher's Summary

Bloomsbury presents Splitting by Amanda Ellison, read by Shelley Atkinson.  

Written by a leading neuroscientist, Splitting tells the fascinating true story about headaches and the secrets they reveal about your brain and overall health.   

Did you know:

  • Chocolate doesn't give you a headache - and may in fact prevent one happening?  
  • 30 percent of us sneeze at sunlight? 
  • You can see off a headache with an orgasm?  
  • That you shouldn't wear a striped top if your spouse gets migraines?   

From migraines to sinus pain to tension headaches - and everything in between - Splitting separates fact from fiction, putting you in control and helping you practise habits that will protect you from headache.

Surprisingly entertaining

As a frequent headache sufferer I expected to find this book informative but didn’t expect to be so well entertained. Well worth a listen.

If you are headache-inclined

Read this since I have chronic migraines and was curious to know further detail. I found the book to be pitched at the right level - plenty of detail but the author has managed to make it easily understandable. If this is an area of personal interest to you I would recommend this.

Fascinating insight into the world of headache.

I have suffered from migraine for many years. In this book Amanda Ellison has explained different types of headache and why we are likely to experience them. I now have a much better understanding of what could be causing my migraine and how I might be able to minimise its occurrence in the future. A great insight into headache and the associated physiology.

Audiobook narration is also excellent.
