An intermediate textbook for practicing clinicians who deal with dizzy patients, including otolaryngologists, neurologists, physical therapists, and audiologists. Emphasizes that a solid understanding of how the overall balance system functions can improve evaluation and treatment, and provides tools for guiding therapy even in cases where the exact diagnosis is elusive. Also useful for beginners in conjunction with more basic texts. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
