The organization of the book makes it easy to use. A surgeon interested in a particular topic can easily find the relevant section or subsection, and if specific data are required, the index can pinpoint these. While not a small book, Surgical Anatomy of the Head and Neck delivers an enormous amount of information in an uncluttered manner by virtue of an economy of language and disciplined presentation.

Surgical Anatomy of the Head and Neck is a comprehensive, detailed gross anatomy textbook of the head and neck and related structures of the upper aerodigestive tract and chest. The text is organized and illustrated well. The desired readership for this text is mainly surgeons involved in the care of patients with head and neck disorders, primarily otolaryngologists; head and neck surgeons; facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons; cranial base surgeons; and clinicians in similar specialties. This text is a welcome addition to the armamentarium of the advanced head and neck and cranial base surgeon and will provide helpful understanding to all those who study and work in this field.
