This excellent book should be welcomed by all physicians, because pain probably represents about 50% of patients' complaints. In this book, these problems are outlined mostly with respect to pain in the body; problems of pain in the head are not included. Considerable space is devoted to diagnostic and therapeutic blocks for pain. One of the outstanding sections of the book is an exhaustive consideration of diagnosis and treatment of shoulder-arm pain and other similar types of pain. The paper is of fine quality; the illustrations are excellent; and the index is adequate.
