In the world of anesthesia, very few textbooks resonate with anesthesiologists the way that The Basics of Anesthesia does. This is the 7th edition of this classic, and the timing of this edition coincides with release of an update of the companion study guide, Miller’s Anesthesia Review. The book honors the 33-yr stewardship of Dr. Miller, and ushers in a changing of the guard with Dr. Pardo assuming the role of lead editor. One will quickly notice the growth and far reaching collection of authors that have contributed to this version; there are a total of 87 authors in this edition. There are many familiar names, with the addition of new authors adding a unique and updated perspective.
