Product Description
Product Details


I found Roger Maltby's book a pleasure to read, invariably informative, nicely illustrated, and well edited. It should find a place in the libraries of all anaesthesia departments and medical schools. (Canadian Bulletin of Medical History, 2003 ) For wannabe anaesthetists who would like some background on their aspirations this is a must. For the rest of us, this can definitely be something that is entertaining to dip into. (Student BMJ ) It is imaginative in concept and successful in execution. Buy it, dip into it, and enjoy it. (British Journal of Anaesthesia ) The short biographies are well written and by reading them it is possible to put flesh on the bare bones of history. Many of the names are still alive and some are still practising anaesthetists. There is a wealth of information in these concise biographies. (Medical Sciences History, Volume 18, 2002 ) [I] was it from cover to cover. It is beautifully printed. I have no doubt it will raise the profile of our specialty - what a brilliant idea. (Reader's Review ) you do not have to be an anaesthetist to enjoy sampling it (George Biro, The Newsletter of the Australian Society for the History of Medicine ) It is an interesting and valuable volume, which should be housed on the shelves of every hospital anaesthetic department... this handbook is easy to dip into as light relief between cases, when preparing for case sessions and while revising for examinations! (Journal of Medical Biography, 2003 ) Maltby has filled a gap in anaesthetic literature...a very readable text. (Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, December 2002 ) This volume contains much valuable and carefully researched information for the medical historian, besides being a fascinating read for general readers, whether medical or non-medical. (Retired Fellows Newsletter, December 2002 ) fascinating personal descriptions...I commend it to old and young anaesthesiologists. (Anaesthesia & Analgesia, 2003 ) a fascinating of the residents at the reviewer's hospital was so overwhelmed by the entertaining nature of the book that...he promptly ordered a copy for himself. (European Academy of Anaesthesiology Newsletter ) Well written and fully illustrated...It provides information that is always one could read this book without learning something [it] deserves a place in all departmental libraries. (Canadian Journal of Anesthesia ) A fascinating read. (European Academy of Anaesthesiology ) Richly illustrated...a pleasure to read. (Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association )
