Pain: The Gift Nobody Wants is a book by Dr. Paul Brand who is a surgeon who discovers why we hurt and what we can do about it. His years of pioneering work among leprosy patients earned him numerous awards and honors. He provides a startling perspective of what life would be like without pain and why we need it in our lives. Pain helps us to know when things are not right and forces us to do something about it quickly. His work with lepers who no longer feel pain in their extremities convinced him how necessary pain is. Pain is a remarkable design feature of the human body and a gift he wished he could give his leprosy patients. His journey into their disease and the stories told pulled at my heartstrings and gave me a deep appreciation for this gift no one wants. A masterpiece.
