Therefore, it should continue to occupy the rarefied position of the primary introductory textbook of anesthesia for medical students and beginning trainees as well as the go-to text for those preparing for the written board exam or the seasoned professional in need of a focused review." - Anesthesia & Analgesia, review of the 5th edition
