"The book does a good job of considering all aspects of pain management treatment, allowing the reader to understand and compare the available options... This book is loaded with information on how the field of pain medicine works... well-written and easy to understand. I highly recommend it in your quest for taking responsibility for your own pain."--About.com

Patients, caregivers, and any library catering them will find Understanding Pain offers key insights into neurology often limited to health professionals--and enables patients to both understand and consider options in pain management."--The Midwest Book Review

"Among the unique characteristics of the book are the suggestions on how to give a complete pain history to a healthcare provider and the emphasis on the importance of a multidisciplinary approach...The glossary is comprehensive and the list of resources is excellent ... The book meets a need for many patients and families struggling to deal with this very common condition."--Doody's Reviews

"The book delivers a reassuring message for people experiencing pain... [and] provides strategies for patients to communicate the nature of their pain to their providers...
