From the book reviews:
"The Comprehensive Textbook of Healthcare Simulation is an excellent resource for anesthesiologists interested in or involved with medical simulation. It has a wealth of information useful for the occasional simulation instructor as well as program developers and operations managers. It is unique in that no other textbook on simulation has been as rich or as encompassing, nor have they offered information provided by such an authoritative collection of authors." (Noel O'Regan, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia/Journal canadien d'anesthesie, Vol. 61, July, 2014)
"This is intended as a `reference textbook' for the field of simulation in healthcare. To that end, it provides an overview of terminology, history, and current issues. ... The book will serve as a comprehensive reference for medical educators developing simulation programs and as an excellent resource for those seeking to expand their knowledge base. ... offers an extensive overview of this field, with some of today's leading experts presenting their viewpoints of healthcare simulation in a cogent and readable manner. It is highly recommended." (Rebecca Bowden, Doody's Book Reviews, November, 2013)
