I only glanced at this book here on line and I think it's ludicris. Has the author ever had chronic pain? I think it's insulting to say if someone's pain stems from a car accident and thier traumatized by that and won't get back behind a wheel he/she is using pain as an excuse. Same for getting injured at work, therefore he/she uses pain as an excuse not to return to work. I agree people get depressed and it creates pain but there is those of us who were in PAIN before the onset of depression. I'm so sick of hearing,"it's all in your head". That is an easy way out for these doctors who can't figure out what's causing the pain to pass there incompetence on to shrinks who from what I've experienced never help w/anything.
