This review is not for the content of the book.
As for the book price, O.M.G. As for the Kindle edition, I was just BARELY able to read the book on my iPad in vertical orientation, occasionally utilizing the double tap magnification when a word wasn't clear. The artwork was quite aesthetically distressing to me, but that's just my taste.
Fair note I recomend this for 5 stars only for the physical copy. I have had several fellow students buy the digital version and have heard complaints that the quality was very poor. This recomendation is ONLY for the physical book and its content.
Pain was preventing me from living my life. As a writer, it kept me from writing my novels because my wrist and shoulder couldn't tolerate being on a computer for more than an hour at a time. But Explain Pain, helped me to understand what was going on with my body. Knowing that the pain wasn't a signal that I was reinjuring the area helped. There were also suggestions as to how to work up to doing things you liked to do, such as taking walks, writing, and how to conquer your pain. The biggest lesson, pushing through the pain is NOT the right strategy.
The medical terminology and concepts were dumbed down for a layman like me. There were plenty of pictures to help explain the concepts being described as well as detailed examples. There wasn't a concept I read I didn't understand by the end of the chapter.
If you have chronic pain, this is the book for you. Acute pain is different; it's generally due to an injury. But chronic pain is debilitating and understanding it is the path to finding solutions. I highly recommend this book to people, like me, who are suffering. In fact, it was my physical therapist who'd recommended it to me. In other words, the medical community approves! It's a fabulous resource.
* Full disclosure, I read my PT's copy and I liked it so well, there were so many great suggestions, concepts, and ideas I wanted my own copy. So I ordered one from Amazon so I could use it as a reference.
