Rocking Review of ‘Pain Is Really Strange’ from a GP

pain book banner v1

‘As a General Practitioner, faced with a patient with chronic pain and having less than ten minutes to ‘sort them out’, I know from experience it is very easy to reach for the prescription pad (or, latterly, the prescribing screen on the computer), rather than engage in lengthy discussion about perception, thinking habits and physical remedies. From now on, however, I may well recommend this great little book as part of my management of such difficult ‘cases’.

‘I learned new ideas from this book. Learning from graphic narratives is one thing, but finding a comic I would actually recommend to patients is a much rarer occurrence. I would definitely recommend this title to those suffering chronic pain or anyone with an interest in this fascinating area.’
