‘This seemingly innocuous picture book on pain is so much more. Steve Haines has compiled a brilliant little volume of insights. Its colorful images evoke in us the playful and open response we need to unlearn long-held beliefs, while the rich scientific information dissembles, piece by piece, the way we’ve come to think about pain as a culture. Haines takes the next step, too; he doesn’t leave us wondering what to do next, but offers practical tools we can use to rewire the mind-body circuits that experience and respond to pain. This tiny book packs a powerful punch.’
