This clearly written, handsomely published book is the out-growth of a plan for teaching the undergraduate medical student the fundamentals of otolaryngology. It has been prepared with the competent assistant of several collaborators. Although it is not intended as a complete reference book, the subject matter is condensed in useful form, the material is up to date and the illustrations emphasize significant points. References appear at the end of the clinical chapters and refer mainly to the literature of recent years. The book should prove popular as a teaching vehicle throughout the medical schools of the country. It is recommended, as well, for the day by day requirements of physicians who are not specialists.
