Pain is Really Strange

Pain is Really Strange

by Steve Haines Author and Sophie Standing Illustrator

Managing pain and figuring out how it works can be difficult to navigate. In the words of Virginia Woolf, "Let a sufferer try to describe a pain in his head to a doctor and language at once runs dry." Pain Is Really Strange by Steve Haines is a graphic guide that presents the science-y stuff behind the body's pain through simple explanations and memorable images. With a light dusting of humor, this book can ease the exploration of the body's responses and how you can retrain your brain when in pain.

Bonus: The comic's cover is not only sturdy but is also ~smooth~ with a matte finish that just might take your mind off the pain you're experiencing, even for just a moment.
