“This book offers an impressive description of CAM modalities, with a noteworthy level of scholarly detail. The interactive tools in the appendix will be particularly helpful in guiding busy clinicians in selecting the most appropriate pain treatments for their patients, given the overwhelming sea of CAM options. I enjoyed reading it and gained many insights on pain biology and mind-body medicine. I will certainly use ‘The Psychometrics of Pain” assessment tools in my practice.” Reviewed by Amrit Devgun, ND, AAP (Northwestern Health Sciences University) Doody’s Score: 95, 4 Stars!
