"Wall and Melzack’s Textbook of Pain is a definitive reference textbook, even with the editorial changing of the guard. Since its first publication 22 years ago, this text, like pain management, has continued to evolve, a clear example of evolution by intelligent design. The fifth edition, especially with the E-dition online package, represents a definite upgrade. For this achievement, the new editors should be congratulated. Dr Melzack should be, and Dr Wall would be, proud." - JAMA, review of the 5th edition
