“This book is a good reference for all physicians practicing pain medicine. … I congratulate the editors and contributors for putting together an informative and useful book on chronic pain.” (Kazuhiro Watanabe, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 126 (5), May, 2018)

“This brief overview practically covers all chronic pain topics and all techniques in the management of chronic pain. … The focus is on multidisciplinary chronic pain management. Prime audiences are pain fellows, pain practitioners, and even primary care physicians who deal with patients with chronic pain on daily basis. … It can serve as a refresher for those taking a certifying pain exam.” (Tariq M. Malik, Doody's Book Reviews, December, 2017)
