It's readily apparent the authors were busy in their clinical careers... so much so that they neglected to spend any time proofreading this book. It's a typical "write some random questions and we'll call it a board review book to make ourselves famous" book by physicians. There are numerous wrong answers to simplistic and redundant questions. There are so many wrong answers that, as one reviewer mentioned, they are often easy to spot; however, in the course of 800+ questions, do you really want to have to recheck answers in textbooks and other sources to verify their accuracy? I didn't appreciate it and wished I had known this prior to using this. In spite of this book, I easily passed the pain boards. Final words of advice: 1. Use a different pain review book(but alas, they all have their faults) and 2. You're better off reading a pain textbook and simple MRI book for the pain boards if you have the time.

Appalling inaccuracies in many areas. Questions are plain wrong in many areas. I made it 1/10 through the book and found at least 3 wrong answers cited as correct in this text. This thing was clearly not reviewed or edited by anyone academic, and hence can't be trusted. I run a pain medicine lecture program for a fellowship and would never recommend this book.

I don't know how someone could go through the trouble of publishing a book without making sure they had their facts straight first. Here are some examples:
1) Baclofen is apparently an alpha 2 agonist
2) Neuropraxia is not a demyelinating condition
3) Horner's syndrome doesn't cause anhydrosis but does manage to cause both mydriasis and miosis.

So far one out of every 8 questions or so is either misleading, poorly worded, or just dead wrong. And it's not just typographical stuff - the explanations themselves actually spell out the author's ignorance.

Reading this book actually made me angry enough to write this review. That's how much I hate it.

There is definitely good material but A LOT of obvious errors. It's blatantly apparent no one proofread this thing. Surprised there wasn't a website devoted to rectifying the mistakes there are so many. Would only recommend this if used in conjunction with another book or else you risk memorizing the wrong info for the exam

I am writing to reiterate many of the previous reviews. I am not stating anything new, but I feel compelled to emphasize how poorly executed this review book is. Just on the first page of questions there are so many contradictory statements, wrong or incomplete answers and inadequately reviewed answers that I fear that I am worse off for using this book. The problems remain consistently bad throughout the text. I would say that you are throwing away money by buying this, but it is worse than that. Since you are learning wrong or incomplete information, you would be better off using nothing at all. In that sense, I would pay money not to use this. Studying from this book is equivalent to engaging in a weight training program that makes you weaker.

In short, do not buy this book.

This book is concise and relevant but it is plagued with mistakes. Many of the letter answer choices do not match the explanation. This seriously lacks proofreading before publishing. Be careful in using this resource.

Could be an excellent board review with relevant content. However there were ubiquitous errors throughout distracting from the otherwise interesting material. Question and answer format is fine but the written answers FREQUENTLY contradicted the letter in the answer key. Typos and numerous internal errors in the questions and answers made me give this book a poor rating. Problems begin in the first two pages and never let up.
Doubt this book was seriously edited otherwise would not have so many double negativequestions, some long through answers and some with just letter values and no explainations etc. The authors need to redo it, eliminate errors and make it more internally consistant

Good book overall but questions are way too easy. It's OK to use as quick review BEFORE you start studying for the pain boards to see what areas you are more deficient in, but do not use to study from or as a single source, it is not enough. I passed the boards comfortably but the actual exam questions were much longer and much more difficult than questions in this book.
