It was with mixed feelings that I sat down to review Dr Allen Gruber's AnesthesiaGUIDE. I should state at the outset that this had nothing to do with Dr Gruber's fine piece of work, but everything to do with the fact that the review was not to be the more usual medical text but, horror of horrors, a dreaded piece of Software. Is it possible to teach an old dog new tricks? How easy will it be to use? Will my coworkers be in suppressed states of hysteria as they watch me at the keyboard?

A kindly colleague showed me how to insert and install the AnesthesiaGUIDE, and I was away and in charge. So far, so good. The author's kindly advice about attending a beginners class in computer literacy was happily not required for this navigator.
