Publisher's Summary

Getting Over Going Under explains The Friedberg Method of Goldilocks Anesthesia in detail. It outlines how you can have your anesthesiologist more effectively keep you or your loved ones sedated and comfortable using 21st century care, and it also reveals the shortcomings of 20th century anesthesia. It details the reasons for patient discomfort and worrisome side effects and how they can be eliminated. And it clearly shows what you, the patient, can do to promote having your anesthesiologist use Goldilocks Anesthesia for cosmetic and other surgeries.

The Friedberg Method was developed in 1992 and enhanced with the addition of the brain monitor to become Goldilocks anesthesia. More than 5,000 of Dr. Friedberg's patients - and he himself when he had hip surgery - have enjoyed its many benefits. If you or a loved one are facing surgery of any kind, this book will assist you in assuring the safest and best possible outcome with your anesthesia experience.

Listen to this book and take the knowledge on it s pages to your doctor so that you can greatly benefit from having a brain monitor used when anesthesia is needed.

Getting over going under

I was so disappointed in this book. I thought I would learn something useful, but this is just a surgeon bragging about his method. Since I can't just choose any surgeon anywhere in the USA, I have no access to this man. How dare he present it as a book when it is just an overly long infomercial. Isn't there any way to un-download a book and get our money back? At least I did learn to be more careful in my choices and listen to the sample as well as read the publishers summary.

Outstanding read!

I give this book because it's great information for medical nerds. Dr. Friedman is lightly needs a light touch and goes deeply when a deeper touch is needed. He really gives great information gives us the power to not be afraid of anesthesia. It is a very safe medical procedure nowadays, and he gives us the power to make it a more useful and painless procedure.
Take some notes and feel much more empowered whenever you need anesthesia the next time.
