Reviews

"As a primer for students, casualty officers and general practitioners I think that it is of high standard and very useful.....Overall, the quality of the text is excellent and information given is useful, clear and appropriate."
ENT News

".the simplified diagrams of brain-meltingly complex ENT anatomy is probably one of the most useful aspects of the book.The text is full of nice medical student friendly lists of symptoms and there is definitely a paucity of excess prepositions. All this adds up to some seriously efficient learning of diseases of the ear, nose and/or throat." The Melbourne University Medical Students Society
