    This second edition of a book originally published in 1985 contains both basic science information and clinical advances in modern otology. The purpose is to provide a comprehensive basic text of the relevant anatomy, pathology, evaluation, and treatment of common otologic problems. It is meant to provide the reader with both clinical perspectives and treatment strategies of common problems seen in the clinical practice. It contains a thorough and comprehensive review of the basic sciences and clinical (i.e., audiology, ABR, ENG) to evaluate any otologic problem. It is written primarily for the resident or student of otology, but could serve as a basic reference for any practitioner involved with the care and evaluation of patients with otologic complaints. The editors are well respected and authorities in their fields. The contributors are equally qualified and provide unique insights into the treatment strategies involved with clinical practice. The book contains an adequate amount of illustrations and a section of color photographs which illustrate some basic pathology. The illustrations are clear and well labeled. Some of the illustrations may be oversimplified, especially the surgical illustrations. It is thoroughly referenced with both current and classic references. It also contains examples of both audiologic tests and vestibular test which help to understand the text accompanying these sections. This well written book could be useful to any resident or practitioner. It provides a comprehensive review of basic sciences and clinical testing involved with the evaluation of patients in an otology clinic. It contains treatment strategies from well respected physicians intheir respective fields. These features combine to make it a good basic reference for practitioners or students of the medical and surgical treatment of ear pathology.
