Regarding Bhikkhu Bodhi's headaches, there's an interview back in 2002 where he mentions having 25 years of chronic headaches here:

Please keep posts on topic, related to Bhikkhu Bodhi and his activities and health. Off-topic posts on the Abhidhamma have been moved to the Abhidhamma thread here:

Apparently the headaches are continuing unabated and are quite severe, so the printing of the full english Anguttara translation by BB may now be back to as late as 2010. :cry:

No need to wait. The Pali Text Society has had an updated AN in translation for about 20 years now. Bhikkhu Bodh's will be much better, I am sure, but the PTS is still pretty good and their re-translation about 20 years ago removed most of the archaic English, that existed in previous editions.

I am looking forward for the Venerable BB's translation!
