This book was recommended to me by a Clinical Psychologist who, prior to Pain Management Clinic, was helping me to cope with severe pain. Although at times the book was a little 'heavy going' it is very useful to now have on my bookshelf for referral. The CD which accompanied the book is extremely helpful - I use 'Body Scan' every day and am now moving on to other forms of meditation. Although this form of help has not made the pain disappear, it has certainly helped me to cope much better. I find it invigorating.
