Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393340252, Paperback)

“A journey through art and literature as well as medical experience, seeking ways of understanding, articulating, and relieving pain.”—Perri Klass, Washington Post

In this impassioned and hopeful book, David Biro reveals how to break through the silent wall of suffering—physical and psychological—that all too often accompanies pain and illness. Drawing together compelling stories from patients and insights from some of our greatest thinkers, writers, and artists, Listening to Pain eloquently demonstrates how lan- guage can alleviate the loneliness of pain, paving the way for empathy and effective treatment. Originally published in hardcover under the title The Language of Pain. 10 black-and-white illustrations
