The second edition of Boies' "Fundamentals of Otolaryngology" contains 471 pages of text with a complete subject index and is profusely illustrated. The arrangement of topics under regions and symptoms is useful for the student and practitioner. Primarily designed for undergraduate teaching, this textbook is also an excellent basic text for the resident who is beginning to specialize in otolaryngology as well as for the general practitioner who wishes a convenient reference work for otolaryngological problems that he encounters so frequently in general practice. There is an interesting "Introduction to Modern Otolaryngology" preceding Chapter 1, which clearly describes the rapid changes that are occurring in this specialty with a widening of its areas and vistas. This improved second edition will continue to appeal to teachers and students as an ideal textbook for the undergraduate medical student.
