''The book is an easy read without complex technical language. The layout of the book is generally appropriate covering the main subject areas: basic science, pre-assessment,conduct of anaesthesia, regional anaesthesia, and miscellaneoustopics at the end. One unique feature of this book is a chapter dedicated entirely to the structure of modern anaesthetics training, discussing the importance of supervision, assessment and appraisal, as well as information on the structure of the FRCA primary and progression to speciality registrar training.''
