Medical doctors Lewis and Ali deliver a hefty overview of the history, causes, symptoms, and treatment of pain. . . .[T]he millions of Americans who suffer from acute pain (less than six months) or chronic pain (more than six months) and the doctors, friends, and family who look out for them will find much good information here.--Booklist
[It was an] impressive book that provides much of the information patients and carers might want . . . It seems factually balanced and was presented in an organized manner. It is nearly all written to the lay reader. . . . [The book] provides patient information at two levels: Basic (Grade 5-6 reading level) and Beyond Basics (Grade 10-12). This book falls in the second group, if not higher. But if you are running a pain clinic, especially a chronic pain clinic, you could recommend this book to patients and carers[.]--International Association for Hospice & Palliative Care
