The writing style can be a little awkward at the beginning of the book, but if you suffer from chronic pain, this book is filled with lots of actionable tips, ah ha moments, and scientific studies to back up their viability. Acknowledging our mind-body systems are intimately connected when it comes to pain management is important and this book elegantly illustrates this point and teaches people how to get a handle on managing health at both levels. Read with an open mind and also see your doctor ...more

These authors really have tried to cover everything that could help a person deal with chronic pain. The doctor explains why pain meds don't work for long, so digging deeper to find out if there are underlying emotional reasons for it may help some people.

I read this book for a class I’m taking at the University of Toronto. Like all self help books, you have to actually DO the work, but this is a fantastic book if you’re dealing with pain.

Well, it was fine, but it wasn't really anything that new to me. I suppose I have been living "mindfully" for a while now, but I just called it " being realistic about my headaches/chronic illness and the limitations that puts on my life". So, I suppose I now have a better phrase, "living mindfully" and that's easier to say. But, there are some good ideas in here, and I did find it helpful to review them. ...more

This book started out a bit slow and tedious - I fell asleep trying to read it a few times, but once the suggested activities and meditations started it was quite helpful.
