There a ton of "take control of your headaches" books. Honestly most of them are either wildly inaccurate or at least unoriginal. If there really was some sort of miracle product, chances are that our neurologists would know about it or it'd be in some sort of peer-reviewed journal.
But truly educational books about headache disorders can be helpful. I think the Mayo Clinic publishes a good one for headache sufferers. But my favorite is Wolff's Headache and Other Head Pain, a textbook published for clinicians but quite comprehensive and useful for a motivated lay reader. You can get it for a reasonable price if you buy an older edition (the latest is the eighth edition, I have the seventh).
There are plenty of free resources available on the internet as well though.
