Robert C Scaer, MD, trained as a psychologist and a neurologist, has for the major part of his professional life been engaged in the challenges located at the interface between neurology and psychiatry. In the present book, he addresses chronic somatic symptoms in the aftermath of trauma that do not lend themselves to ordinary medical understanding and that frequently resist usual therapeutic approaches. He has chosen to elicit the nature--and perhaps logic--of persisting disability resulting from whiplash injuries. His professional familiarity with this particular medical problem seems comprehensive.
