This book is not just for understanding pain and perception. It does more than just distil immensely complicated science into a delightfully fun and thought-provoking book. It facilitates a greater sense of empathy for those who experience pain or anyone who just cannot see/experience the world the way you do. This is a book for absolutely anyone and everyone.
What can illusions teach us about pain? Is what we see, hear, and feel as simple as it appears to be? The modern science of perception has unearthed new ways to think about pain – as an experience that has multi-sensory and multi-factorial underpinnings. Leading pain researchers, Dan Harvie and Lorimer Moseley, walk us through this science by interacting with illusions that challenge our assumptions on how perception actually works. A visually stunning, fun and accessible read to help anyone better understand and respond to pain.
