Overall, this is an excellent resource on effective communication in healthcare. It brings up interesting communication concerns with patients interacting with anesthesiologists in different clinical contexts and it reminds one to prioritize patient perceptions that will allow patient autonomy and cooperation and decrease patient anxiety.

This is an excellent introductory book on communication for trainee or consultant anaesthetists aiming to fine tune their interactions and teaching prowess. It certainly forms a solid platform for those interested in reading further into these areas. Books like this can very often appear too 'fluffy' to the palate, but this one is surprisingly refreshing from the outset.
