“Really enjoyed reading this book. Great insight into the world of a doctor. The book is written with some humour too so it will make you giggle in places. Some great quotes used too to some up chapters I would highly recommend this book for everyone not just doctors and nhs workers but patients too.”
“The author is explaining the role of the anaesthetist in hospital medicine. He is also making the readers aware about an insight of the process of anaesthesia. The most interesting thing about this book is that the author has portrayed anaesthetist as a human being.
Anaesthetists are aka gasoose or gasman. Gasooses manage sick patients in intensive care and high dependency units. Jazz has shared useful information in this book from his experience, observations, etc. The quotes mentioned in the chapters are worth knowing.”
“The book was recommended by a nurse friend. It’s a simply and easy read. As the front suggests there is a lot of humour in it. I feel maybe NHS and hospital related staff would enjoy this book. It was a bonus there was no mention of covid. I can’t understand why he substituted the word Gasman through out the book. I really liked all the quotations. Margaret”
“The book has a brilliant title. Written pre COVID it tells the story of what an anaesthetist does in a hospital setting. I enjoyed the book and having worked in a Critical Care Unit I could relate to a lot of his anecdotes.
It doesn’t contain any technical jargon and so should be an easy read for the general public. A great book to read if you are waiting for a routine operation. I especially liked the famous people quotations as it adds a bit of quirkiness. There is a lot of appropriate humour and sensitivity. Highly recommend to all NHS workers.”
