    This book is a radical departure from traditional texts and good for this .
    My reservations are that the book could have been shorter in that it is really two books (it is also expensive) If you have the first book MNS the second half of the book is more or less duplicated.
    The most important part of the book is the neuroscience and pain sections which integrate physiology/stress biology and movement . Many people skip the theory and go to the techniques which I think is a pity.
    David and Lorimers Explain Pain book could be a primer for people getting interested in pain and stress biology and is probably an easier read for depts of Physio ,It would probably be read by more people as a result?

      I enjoyed the Explain Pain audio. David and Lorimer chatting away - great! I want more books on audio like that (not the biggest fan of reading either).

        I think the book has gone out of print. Hang onto those autographed copies people, they'll be worth megabucks some day.

          Good idea. I'm attending Explain Pain with Butler in march. I'll bring my SNS and ask if he'll sign it

                      I see there is still a listing for it here. Amazon is down to just a handful. I was at amazon last week, and saw it as "out of print." They must have found an overlooked box of books somewhere.

                              Well, I'm glad to see that it still seems to be available. Just not so much on Amazon.
                              My copy is hardcover and is autographed. I am so picky about this particular book (and one or two others) that I have never lent it out even though I've been asked.
                              Normally I don't care who reads/borrows/uses/forgets to return books.
