Editorial Reviews

Review

Rarely does a book come along with so much potential for changing the intellectual basis for treating patients with pain. This text puts forth a patient-specific, qualitative rather than evidence-based, interdisciplinary conceptualization of treating chronic pain that is grounded in postmodern therapy and narrative therapy. In fact, this book has appeal to more than just those physicians who treat chronic pain because many of its concepts are applicable to any physician who treats a suffering patient. [...] In summary, few books offer such fresh, novel, intellectually challenging 'reconstructions' of our current perceptions of a field of medicine, in this case the treatment of pain. I highly recommend this book and would expect it to be in the library of many pain specialists. --Jonathan D. Carlson, MD, PhD, Journal of Neurosurgery, Vol. 104, April 2006

This volume presents the views of authors from an impressively wide range of fields who engage the question of how the experience and psychophysiology of pain is related to the narratives or stores told by individuals suffering from pain. [...] The arguments of this book provoke a reader in our academic climate of evidence and algorithms to recognize how fundamental it is for the systematic study of human suffering to take into account that persons are fundamentally meaning-making beings, and that the difficulties or ease persons experience narrating their suffering are matters of essential consequence. --Paul Lysaker, PhD, The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease, Vol. 195, No. 4, April 2007

This book is highly recommended not only for the staff of multidisciplinary pain clinics but for all medical school and hospital libraries. --T. Cramond in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, Vol. 34, No. 5, October 2006
