Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Alice Lin, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This handbook of the most common ENT-related diseases goes through each topic superficially and leaves open spaces for notes. This updates the 2006 edition.
Purpose: It is meant to be a pocket guide that can be carried and accessed easily by someone who is just learning about ENT. The book meets the objectives, providing cursory information on the most common ENT diseases.
Audience: Although it's not explicitly stated, the book appears to be written for medical students rotating in ENT. This is an appropriate audience.
Features: The book is divided into organ systems and each system is further divided into common problems in that system. The unique feature is plenty of blank space intended for notes. Shortcomings of the book include oversimplifying certain problems.
Assessment: This is a good quick and easy guide for students in ENT, but some of the oversimplifications can be misleading to novice otolaryngologists.
From the Publisher

"There have been other handbooks on this topic, but this is an attractive addition with current information. This book is also intended to be used as a notebook, providing blank pages for the reader to make notes."--Doody's
