Anaesthesia is a modern miracle. But how much do we really know about what happens to us on the operating table? Is pain still pain if we are not awake to feel it? Writer and journalist Kate Cole-Adams melds science and philosophy with personal experiences to explore the gift of oblivion and the mystery of unconsciousness.

Anestesi adalah keajaiban modern. Namun, seberapa banyak kita benar-benar tahu tentang apa yang terjadi pada kita di meja operasi? Apakah rasa sakit masih terasa sakit jika kita tidak bangun untuk merasakannya? Menguasai bidang sains dan filsafat dengan pengalaman pribadi untuk mengeksplorasi bakat terlupakan dan misteri dari ketidaksadaran.
