This is not your everyday scientific textbook, so this won’t be your everyday book review. Joanna Oram Fox, M.B.B.Ch., F.R.C.A. (Fellow of the Royal College of Anaesthetists), is a Specialist Trainee in Anaesthesia at University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff, Wales. Dr. Fox graduated from Cardiff University in 2007, worked for 4 yr as a general doctor, began anesthetic training in 2011, and will complete her training in 2018. This book grew out of her own use of anatomic drawings to help memorize and then teach difficult anatomic concepts. She says, “drawing simplified diagrams helped us to label any anatomy image shown to us, and so it might help others too.” The main idea of the book is to make anatomy simpler to learn, and the target audience is those training in anesthesia and preparing for the Fellow of the Royal College of Anaesthetists examinations.
