An excellent coverage of the causes and treatments of orofacial pain. Each chapter covers a single cause, e.g. trigeminal neuralgia, or a related group of causes, e.g. fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and multiple sclerosis. Dr. Shankland clearly explains the symptoms of each disorder, in some cases mentioning a specific one that can help distinguish that disorder from another. While the author can wax technical at times, the reader should still be able to finish easily. The book is well-organized and easy to scan if one is looking for particular information. Closing chapters on medications and alternative medicines provide information on a wide range of treatment options; so the reader should be able to find help she is comfortable with, regardless of one's personal health and medicine philosophy. I found the book extremely helpful in my own search for answers about my pain.
