Pain Management Made Incredibly Easy! is divided into four parts. Part 1 covers the fundamental concepts of pain, including the anatomy and physiology of pain, the experience of pain, and pain assessment. Part 2 covers common types of pain as well as pain specific to AIDS patients, cancer patients, pediatric patients, and elderly patients.
Part 3 discusses managing pain, including pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic approaches to pain management, acute pain management, management of surgical pain, and alternative and complementary therapies. Part 4 concerns patient education about dependency and abuse and lifestyle management. Appendices cover web resources, the IASP classification of chronic pain syndromes, and various pain assessment scales. The book continues the user-friendly approach of the Incredibly Easy! series, using Nurse Joy and friends to make the text entertaining as well as informative.

The author of City Unique takes us back to the wicked old Montreal of 1948 in this fine, funny novel, where an innocent seventeen-year-old McGill student falls for a famous stripper “Catcher in the Rye meets Guys and Dolls”? Maybe. Or how about “Evelyn Waugh’s Decline and Fall comes to Mordecai Richler’s Montreal”? Close. But best of all is simply this: “William Weintraub — friend of Richler, Moore, and Gallant — has quietly produced a mature comic masterpiece.” Our hero, Richard Lippman, is about to enter McGill and is desperate for two things — a sense of direction in life and, much more important, sexual experience with a real, live girl. Unknown to his “refined” Westmount parents, he’s brought into the exciting Montreal world of burlesque and brothels by his Uncle Morty, who introduces him to Lili L’Amour, the star stripper of the day. Before you know it, he’s (a) head over heels in love with Lili and (b) using his poetic talents to write the text for her routine, and even giving her tips on how to move. Much follows, including his creation of “Freckles, The Girl Next Door,” a stripping sensation. By day a respectful McGill student courted by campus Communists, by night a free-spending night-club sampler and reviewer — well, it’s quite a year for Richard. And this is quite a novel for all of us. Watch for falling prizes.
