'Despite being titled as a pharmacology text, there is significant coverage of the pathophysiology and practice of anaesthesia. The content is current, with several new drug compounds and theories of action described. This book complements the filtered down information found in many of the smaller texts recommended to trainees sitting exams and by increasing understanding of the subjects might aid long-term learning ... It provides an enormous amount of information to the reader in a clear and understandable format. As a reference text, it would be a bood addition to the library of an anaesthesiaor intensive care department.' The Journal of Anaesthesia
