Summary
This much anticipated collection of stories, written by Oxford University Fellow and Pain Scientist, Dr GL Moseley, provides an entertaining and informative way to understand modern pain biology. Described by critics as 'a gem' and by clinicians as 'entertaining and educative', Painful Yarns is a unique book. The stories, some of his travels in outback Australia, some of experiences growing up, are great yarns. At the end of each story, there is a section "so what has this got to do with pain?" in which Lorimer uses the story as a metaphor for some aspect of pain biology. The level of the pain education is appropriate for patients and health professionals. The entertainment is good for everyone. You don't have to be interested in pain to get something from this book and a laugh or two!

Note
In 'Payinful Yarns' the names of some people and places have been changed to protect them from offence...all the stories are based on true happenings. Like all yarns, however, the degree to which they stick to the facts is somewhat variable. In the words of Ben 'Chow Mein' Hopkins, a dear friend and great story teller, 'Why ruin a really good yarn by sticking completely to the truth?' (from the book)
