Pain is Really Strange
by Steve Haines and Sophie Standing
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.
