Review quote

This handbook, one in the Oxford Specialist Handbooks series, covers almost the entire field of neuranesthesia ... is particularly easy to read and, because of its size, simple to carry in a pocket ... It provides hands-on information for those who only occasionally care for neurosurgical patients as well as those learning to. As the book is so readable, well-orgaized, and interesting, it readily meets the authors' objectives ... This is an excellent handbook, strongly consistent in its writing and organization.
