The author states that it is his desire to limit this work almost exclusively to his own personal experiences; therefore it cannot be considered as a textbook. The subjects are taken up comprehensively, beginning with the chief diseases of the nose, pharynx, nasopharynx, larynx, trachea, ear, and then the acute complications of mastoiditis. Following that is a discussion of the chronic diseases of these structures. A great deal of attention is given to therapy, perhaps more than one would expect in a work on applied pathology. It is a little surprising that at times a number of proprietary preparations are mentioned, such as listerine. Many valuable points are suggested, based not only on the author's clinical experience but also on his knowledge of the literature. The book has numerous illustrations, many of them excellent. The section on deformities of the ear and plastic surgery contains clinical cases to illustrate it.
