Over the course of the last 2 decades, as surgical techniques have evolved, thoracic surgery has become an option in a larger number of disease processes and in patients with more severe comorbid conditions. The recently published Principles and Practice of Anesthesia for Thoracic Surgery is a testament to this rapid expansion in thoracic surgery and the associated need for an up-to-date description of best anesthesia practices. Editor Peter Slinger, a renowned expert in thoracic anesthesiology, has brought together more than 60 contributors from Canada, Germany, Hungary, India, Japan, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States to produce this comprehensive text addressing the global practice of anesthesia for thoracic surgery.
