    Summary: "Women are affected by many chronic pain conditions in overwhelmingly greater numbers than are men. They are also at higher risk of disability due to pain in all age groups. Addressing this problem with a comprehensive and practical examination of the problem, Pain in Women: A Clinical Guide is an important contribution to the literature on sex-based differences in illness and pain in particular. Developed by a renowned group of experts in pain medicine, this ... title is designed not only to review the basics of the current understanding of the biological differences between the sexes when it comes to pain conditions, but also to provide clinicians in varying fields with a guide that helps elucidate the proposed neuroanatomical and neurophysiological mechanisms that are currently understood to underlie these differences."
