This is a must have book for chronic pain sufferers as well as their family, friends and caregivers. As the husband of a chronic pain sufferer I am always dealing with queries about "How much pain is she having?" or "She must be feeling better, I've seen her walking outside the store last week". Upon reading the first chapter I thought, "Oh boy, they are going to dumb this down too much"and then surprisingly found that chapter after chapter the authors were building a well crafted story about pain and how each individual suffers a unique experience. This book has given my wife the ability to, for lack of a better word, "rationalize" her pain and deal with it on a less emotional level.
Chronic pain is a strain not only on the sufferer but also on family, friends and the medical system. While this book does not make pain disappear, it does make it understandable, and also gives people something they thought they had lost, hope.
