Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is the best comprehensive up-to-date volumes from A to Z regarding virtually every aspect of the diagnosis, genetics, and surgical/nonsurgical treatments of Otolaryngology. … ENT doctors, otorhinolaryngology workers, otologists, audiometricians will find this book worth the price for what is provided. It serves both as a reference and atlas for surgeons of the cranial skull base. I recommend it to all interested in the field.” (Joseph Grenier, Amazon.com, February, 2015)
