"The Oxford Handbook of Pain Management is a remarkable book. In one pocket-sized volume you get the vast world of pain management - from labour analgesia ro opioid pharmacology, from advanced nerve block techniques to the principles of psychodynamics. The breadth of this book - the combined wisdom of 45 specialists - is breathtaking"
"This is another addition to the well-known Oxford Handbook series. It aims to provide a concise 'in-your-pocket'
guide to pain management a useful addition to an occupational health department's 'library'. I would also recommend it to trainees studying for their Membership of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine Part 2 as chronic pain is a common topic." - Occupational Medicine, Feb 2013
