"This is the first book that bridges the gap between a surgical textbook and an elementary lay book. Dr. Filler clearly describes the nature of back pain and treatment in a fashion that is sufficiently detailed yet reasonably concise to address these important issues. He takes out the mystery and writes in an engaging readable style."--Joshua P. Prager, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA
"Dr. Filler's text takes you from injury, through understanding and decision-making, to treatment and recovery for most common problems with the spine. In addition to giving you important knowledge about your back, it also will provide an equally important 'peace of mind.'"--Richard Fessler, University of Chicago
"Dr. Filler demonstrates the skills of a gifted communicator by carefully refining details into a succinct and relevant script."--James Byrne, University of Oxford
"This excellent book should have wide appeal to a range of medical professionals and to patients.... The book succeeds in its aim 'to fill a major void by providing a comprehensive and authoritative reference source to patients facing spinal surgery.' It can be recommended with confidence."--South African Medical Journal
