From the book reviews:"This is a comprehensive overview of the diagnosis, causes, prevention, and treatment of endodontic pain. ... the book is intended for general clinical practitioners and can be used for a course on pain diagnosis and treatment for predoctoral students. ... This book is well organized and well written. It contains a great breadth and depth of information on pain diagnosis and treatment. It is both timely and evidence-based." (Janet H.
