At a time when access to health care in the United States is being widely debated, Nortin Hadler argues that an even more important issue is being overlooked. Although necessary health care should be available to all who need it, he says, the current health-care debate assumes that everyone requires massive amounts of expensive care to stay healthy. Hadler urges that before we commit to paying for whatever pharmaceutical companies and the medical establishment tell us we need, American consumers need to adopt an attitude of skepticism and arm themselves with enough information to make some of their own decisions.

it's amazing the money spent (wasted) on things that don't work and build false hope. Because the book is well researched, thought out and rational, sadly I'm sure none of its wisdom will be applied.

The acclaimed author of Carved in Sand - a veteran investigative journalist who endured persistent back pain for decades - delivers the definitive book on the subject: an essential examination of all facets of the back pain industry, exploring what works, what doesn't, what may cause harm, and how to get on the road to recovery. In her effort to manage her chronic back pain, investigative reporter Cathryn Jakobson Ramin spent years and a small fortune on a panoply of treatments.

I make a living assessing failed back pain patients. It's encouraging to know the industry is changing for the better.

I use the strategies outlined almost everyday! The ideas work with my family and at work. I've read lots about cognitive behaviour therapy and its nice to see it put into action in such a practical way.
