"This is an attempt to fill a gap in case-based pain management. Similar types of books are available in other fields of medicine, but this a first in the field of pain. The chapters are well written, the approach to the disease process is outlined in a very systematic way, and management strategies are logically presented. It's a nice refresher course in pain medicine that would be a nice addition to anyone's library." -- Doody's Featured in BizIndia "The adventures in pain medicine are written with a consistent style devoid of errors. They lead the reader along a logical path through the diagnostic process to a satisfactory conclusion. I found the volume engaging, educational, and entertaining... It is an easy volume to navigate... The opinions are balanced, and usually with good supporting evidence... Is this, a textbook, reference volume, or just a darn good read? I think it is all of the above. It certainly achieves its goal of presenting interdisciplinary information on common pain syndromes in an engaging and clinically relevant format. Every pain practitioner who reads this volume will achieve insights that are not usually presented in conventional texts and then will be able to provide a more comprehensive approach to day-to-day clinical problems." --Pain Medicine
