Reviews

"The purpose is to provide a ready to use, comprehensive book on chronic pain management. This fourth edition successfully does that, covering all the topics one needs to know. In this age where everyone is inclined to search a topic online for a quick sound bite, this book is yet more evidence why books are still needed and, more importantly, still need to be read for better patient care."
