Review

Stimulating and occasionally unsettling history of anaesthesia. Andrew Robinson, The Lancet Snow's admirable account of the slow triumph of anaesthesia astonishes by its revelation of the inhumanity of so many doctors. Nigel Hawkes, The Times [An] immensely readable book. Health and History

This is an excellent book, and well deserving of five stars. Researched in great detail and written in a colorful, expressive manner, this book brings the history of anaesthesia to life in a way that will keep you turning the pages.

I believe this book was written by a descendent of John Snow, which makes it even more special and immediate. I was amazed to learn about the intriguing and sometimes bizarre history of something we all take for granted -- anaesthesia.

I hope the author writes more medical history books, as this was a real winner. Well worth the $$!

This was another book suggested to me by my physician friend for a young person who wants to be an anesthesiologist! She loves the book! Another good read for a budding physician!
