From the reviews of the second edition:

"The purpose is to fill a void in anesthesia education. … The book fulfills its objective admirably. Intended for resident and practicing anesthesiologists, the book will serve as a valuable tool for anyone providing anesthesia for elderly. The editors are authorities on anesthesia and geriatrics and the contributing authors are a diverse group of anesthesiology and surgery experts." (Zdravka Zafirova, Doody’s Review Service, January 2008)

"The book has 29 chapters and is divided into 4 parts … . many of my questions about geriatric anesthesia care were answered by this book. … Geriatric Anesthesiology is a good value and will serve the reader well. I anticipate that this timely text will be both fundamental and detailed enough for use by trainees and seasoned practitioners alike. It is the kind of textbook that rekindles my original enthusiasm for choosing anesthesiology as a career … ." (Alex Macario, JAMA, Vol. 299 (15), 2008)
