From the reviews:
"This review of the pharmacology and clinical uses of opioids provides an overview of pain anatomy and physiology and ... how to treat different painful conditions with narcotics. ... The book is intended for any physician who treats patients with acute or chronic pain, making it appropriate for pain specialists and primary care physicians. However, any surgeon or physician ... would find this book helpful. ... This is an excellent addition to the field of pain medicine, bridging the gap between pharmacology and practice." (Tariq M. Malik, Doody's Review Service, June, 2008)
