Pain Management Decoded: Surviving and Thriving with Chronic Pain by Dr. JB Kirby is a non-fiction self-help book relating to chronic pain management. In this fairly short book, JB talks about her own extensive background as a medical professional and a nurse practitioner who has been involved in this field for several years. The book then starts off with her own personal experience with chronic pain due to a rare condition known as Adhesive Arachnoiditis. She discusses her daily routine as a college professor and makes us aware of how small things like taking the stairs or even walking from one place to another can be a challenge at times. The book then continues on to talk about what chronic pain is, some health tips to manage it, the importance of the right attitude, pacing yourself for tasks, and more.

Pain Management Decoded: Surviving and Thriving with Chronic Pain is a good book that talks about chronic pain, its definition, symptoms, and ways to manage it to the best extent possible in a manner that is non-technical without medical jargon. As a result, this book can be read by any layperson and the simple, heart-to-heart writing style can appeal to a wide class of readers of all age groups. This book is not just about one particular condition or illness, which I appreciated, but instead talks about pain resulting from any number of causes. Considering that a lot of people do suffer from long-term or chronic pain, I am sure they and their caretakers will find this book very useful.
