From the reviews of the second edition:
"The writing style is clear and easy to follow. I liked the presentation of the material and the layout within the individual chapters. ... the whole range of treatments from simple nerve blocks to spinal cord stimulation are covered. ... this book is a useful vade mecum for those physicians starting out in pain medicine who find themselves with a large proportion of elderly patients in their practice. For a book of its size it contains a great deal of information." (British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, May, 2011)
"The book becomes a direct source of understandable and detailed recommendations for the attentive reader. ... The winning combination of overview and details from current evidence-based medicine will make this handbook attractive to all pain professionals as well as to other professional communities in the healthcare system, such as nursing staff in hospitals and facilities for the elderly. ... succeed in motivating the reader to use ... insights and create networks on local, political, and media-related levels, with the aim of improving pain relief." (Matthias Karst, Journal of the American Medical Association, May, 2011)
"This multiauthored monograph on the nature and treatment of pain in older persons updates the first edition of 2004. The purpose is to provide a comprehensive look at pain in older persons ... . The audience is prescribers who treat older persons. ... This is a good book. The second edition adds information from more current guidelines and discusses how the Internet and electronic medical records are part of the solution." (David O. Staats, Doody's Review Service, June, 2011)
