This concise, readable text covers the basics of ENT assessment, presents common clinical conditions, and discusses advances in sensory physiology and microsurgical techniques. It describes the impact of endoscopic surgery on the understanding and treatment of nasal and sinus disorders, and on the evaluation and surgery of the larynx and trachea. Improved reconstructive techniques which have minimized morbidity from major head and neck resections are also explained. The key concepts are highlighted in the margins and summarized at the end of each chapter, and most illustrations are in full color. This book will be of great interest to medical students, family practitioners, pediatricians, neurologists, and numerous physicians who deal with the head and neck.

'The up-to-date and logically ordered text is well illustrated, making for easy reading ... A delicate balance of sufficient detail has been achieved, enabling understanding of each disorder and of a conceptual approach to management without burdening the reader with tedious lists of options.
This book will appeal not only to students - it is comprehensive enough to make it a very useful office reference for family practitioners ... I recommend it highly.' Robert Black, Medical Journal of Australia

Polly Adams, St. Mary's Hospital Gazette'
'This is an excellent, well presented book with clear diagrams and good colour reproductions.'
'the quality and variety of textbooks available has improved beyond all measure ... This book is a good example. The sections are laid out logically and the text is clear with some dry humour.'
Dr Martin Rhodes, GP, MIMS Magazine Weekly, 1993
'This book provides a first-class introduction to ENT for medical students and practising doctors who have not undergone specialist ENT training. Key points throughout the text are clearly emphasized in highlighted boxes - ideal for quick reference or revision. This excellent book must be the
first to combine a thorough introduction to ENT with a presentation attractive enough to persuade even non-specialists to give it a second look.'
Marcelle von Schoenberg, Whittington Hospital, London, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, 1993, Vol. 50, No 2/3

criticism to make of this publication. I recommend it highly.'
