Review

"In this insightful and humane book about pain, suffering, and survival, Haider Warraich once again braids history and personal history to confront questions both ancient and contemporary. It is a marvelous read."

-Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee, author of The Emperor of All Maladies

"Pain is both a universal experience and one that is deeply connected to class, gender, race, and power-truths that the opioid epidemic and declining life expectancy have made tragically apparent. In The Song of Our Scars, Warraich explores how the medical community's approach to pain went off the rails and makes a passionate case for more holistic, person-centered treatment. Beautifully written and deeply humane, this is essential reading for anyone seeking to under-stand the roots of the opioid crisis."

-Beth Macy, author of Dopesick

"As physician-author Warraich aptly points out, 'Almost everything we know about pain and how we treat it is wrong.' His masterful new book is a unique, panoramic, and deep view of pain, taking us through his personal experience, its history and evolution, the science, and the massive corporate corruption that caused the opioid epidemic. An incredible book."

-Dr. Eric Topol, author of Deep Medicine

"A wonderful exploration of the chronic pain conundrum-past and present-in all of its varied dimensions: biomedical, psychological, social, and economic. Warraich is truly a gifted storyteller."

-Dr. Damon Tweedy, author of Black Man in a White Coat

"The Song of Our Scars is a brilliant deep dive into the emotional, physical, and metaphysical world of pain. The very personal and ultimately hopeful book takes us on a remarkable journey across millennia and deep into the brain and consciousness. It also offers an unsparing look at how the cure (for chronic pain) became the disease. Dr. Haider Warraich has written The Emperor of All Maladies for pain."

-Dr. Jonathan Reiner, author of Heart

"Pain is the most universal yet misunderstood aspect of what it means to be human. Dr. Warraich leverages his own intimate relationship with suffering and highly developed skills as a physician healer to pen a masterful book that will change your lens on mankind forever. The Song of Our Scars attacks the principal element of the human condition to be deciphered if we hope to mitigate the torment of societal scourges such as racism, poverty, chronic illness, and loneliness. The net result of Dr. Warraich's research and writing will, I believe, shorten the distance from our brains to our hearts and create a path toward healing and lasting empathy for one another."

-Dr. Wes Ely, author of Every Deep-Drawn Breath

"To paraphrase Virginia Woolf, considering how common pain is, it's strange that it hasn't 'taken its place with love and battle and jealousy among the prime themes of literature.' The Song of Our Scars goes a long way to remedying this. Essential reading for anyone hoping to understand what it means to be alive."

-Daniel Wallace, author of Big Fish
