Published Reviews

Anesthesia & Analgesia called the 7th edition "a modern classic" and noted that "each chapter is well written, clear, and concise."

"This excellent review of paediatric anaesthesia covers everything from basic to clinical aspects. It's meant to be a one-stop reference for all of paediatric anaesthesia. There are quite a few books on this topic, and they struggle to maintain a balance between breadth and depth. This book manages that beautifully. It is a wonderful addition to the library of anyone who practices paediatric anaesthesia, either occasionally or on a regular basis."
