Part 2 has four chapters grouped under the heading Symptom Management. Chapter 8, "Physical Symptom Management in the Terminally Ill: An Overview for Mental Health Professionals," includes pain of course, as does chapter 9, "Psychiatric Aspects of Pain Management in Patients With Advanced Cancer and AIDS." This is a weakness of the book, perpetuation of the brain-mind division. Naturally, these chapters deal with many of the same subjects. Pleasingly, both give permission to use stimulants. In chapter 11 there is consideration of "the mechanism by which psychological distress is transduced into fatigue." Again, the supposed brain-mind division emerges and, in this instance, quite misleadingly. In a revision the authors might consider the term "organism distress." The authors helpfully inform us that when stimulants are used, the rate of discontinuation due to side effects is less than 10%. If I were to be stranded on a desert island and could only take one chapter of this book, I would pick chapter 8.
