Somewhat less than 300 pages long, this small, paper-covered book is intended for medical students and “housemen”. First written in 1965, this popular British anesthesia text is now in its fourth edition. Although well written and cleanly illustrated, the book attempts to deal with altogether too much material in too few pages to be anything but an introduction. The charts, pictures, and line drawings are frequently used to great advantage and are clearly the book's finest feature.
