In the preface to the third edition of the Atlas of Interventional Pain Management, Steven Waldman states that his text addresses the technical needs of members of this expanding field by focusing more on the “how than why” of various pain-relieving procedures and by offering more “pictures than words.” He succeeds in accomplishing this aim. The atlas contains a plethora of figures, radiographic images, and pathological sections geared toward providing readers with a firm grasp of the anatomy involved in these procedures. Compared with the prior edition, the text now contains 20 new chapters and more than 100 additional images. It comprises 8 sections, of which 7 are divided based on anatomical region and 1 is dedicated to advanced interventional pain management techniques.
