    "…Weiner's text is state-of-the-art on all aspects of pain and its multidisciplinary management. … Unusually for a tome this large, it makes for quite a good read. It even tells you how to fix a headache."
    - Janet Hardy, Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton, Surrey, UK, in Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine

    "…a wonderful, interesting book which I will refer to whenever I need to discuss pain control. Compared to other books, it definitely covers topics never addressed in internationally recognized resources. 5 stars!"
