"The book takes a standard approach of using clinical case
scenarios. Case scenarios are designed to hook the reader, to show
clinical application, and to reinforce central points. ... It is a
well-written and thorough survey, and it is a terrific book to base
an introductory course in perioperative ethics. I recommend it to
those who are beginning to participate in clinical ethics. ... this
book is well suited for the episodic nature of trainee education
found in academic medicine." (David B. Waisel, Anesthesia &
Analgesia, Vol. 123 (4), October, 2016)
"This is a collection of articles on a wide range of issues particular to the disciplines of surgery and anesthesiology and the unique relationship they share. Each chapter starts with a case scenario that is discussed and analyzed within its own specific context. ... the book is intended for medical professionals, both in practice and in training, as well as educational institutions and hospital committees. This is an effective educational tool for all these audiences, including nonphysicians." (Brandy M. Fox, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2016)
