Pain: The Gift Nobody Wants by Paul Brand, Philip Yancey
Its hard to imagine pain as a gift, but thats the compelling conclusion of Dr. Paul Brand, who has spent his remarkable life studying pain & its implications for medical treatment, overall health, & human happiness. Here is the inspiring story of his 50-year career as a healer. He received medical training in wartime England & then returned to India, where his work as a hand surgeon led to astonishing breakthroughs in the treatment of leprosy. He discusses the personal & societal implications of this countrys inability to accept or deal with pain, & tells how each individual can learn how to make a friend of pain.
