This is an indispensable reference book for the shelves of hospital libraries or for physicians who may engage in the administration of general, regional or local anesthetics. It is essentially a report based on the extensive experience of the author. The average physician engaged in or supervising ordinary anesthetic procedures would be likely to select a group of relatively simple technics for various types of anesthesia, however, and once this had been done would be unlikely to change the anesthetic method and agent at frequent intervals. It is for this reason that the reviewer feels that this book is more useful as a reference book than as a handbook which can serve as a simple guide. The latter information, which is based on the judgment and experience of the author, is available, should the reader desire to develop it from the text or the tables.
