From the book reviews:
Selected as “Highly Commended” at BMA Medical Book Awards for 2014.
“The books strengths are its relatively small size and comprehensive review of many of the evolving and grey areas of Cancer Pain. It is easy to read, and makes a point of reviewing complex, and often unsolved areas of practice with a straight-forward approach, using modern research. … This is an extremely useful book, reviewing many of the difficult areas in current practice. Aimed mainly at the specialist; it is easy or read, with clear and useful references.” (BMA Medical Book Awards, September, 2014)
“The book is certainly up-to-date. Each chapter begins with a short abstract and concludes with key points that allow the reader to quickly scan the chapter and glean the important details. ... the book would be useful to have on the shelf for reference. It provides a thorough overview of the field and serves to highlight the need for a better understanding of this subject.” (Jonathan Yen, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia/Journal canadien d'anesthésie, Vol. 61, May, 2014)
