'Fundamentals of Anaesthesia manages to combine common sense with concise information to be an all-in-one anaesthesia textbook. Although it is aimed at trainees sitting the primary FRCA, I suspect it will be useful for the final fellowship, for anaesthetists returning to clinical work after time out, and for consultants wanting a brief overview for teaching purposes.' British Medical Journal, January 2000
'Fundamentals of Anaesthesia is an excellent textbook for anyone preparing for the primary FRCA.' Anaesthesia, April 2000
'Overall, Fundamentals of Anaesthesia is an excellent book, which I enjoyed reading, and which will be valuable to practising and training anaesthetists throughout the world … I encourage those preparing for their Part 1 FRCA examination to purchase this book …This book will also be a welcome addition to departmental libraries and private reference collections.' European Journal of Anesthesiology, 2000
'The book's declared intent is to function as a revision aid for the primary FRCA. As such, it works very well. The layout is clear and graphics are cleverly used to focus then eye and the mind.' British Journal of Anaesthesia
'… attractively presented in four colour-coded sections and a functional index. It is well illustrated with line drawings, scientific figures and highlighted text boxes … affordable and … provides a comprehensive resource for basic trainees or a useful revision aid for more senior grades.' Anaesthesia and Intensive Care
