    "Written as an introductory account to the subject for postgraduate nurses, ODA s and medical students, these target groups have obviously voted with their feet and purchased this book in large quantities. No doubt they will continue to do so, and with good reason. . . the writing is concise and lucid, providing an extensive and up to date overview in a very short time. The index is excellent and there are some useful suggestions for further reading. . . At £25 not only will the target audience be well satisfied with their purchase, but also novice anaesthetists will gain a rapid understanding of their chosen subject in the course of a few evening s reading." Today’s Anaesthetist, January 1996
    Anaesthesia has been among my recommendations for some time now. This second edition is . . . so extensive and up to date that it will not only top my list of recommended texts but it will be the list." Nursing Times
