This short monograph, described by the author as a "text atlas," is, in reality, a "master's class" for a select group of surgeons who perform extensive rhinoplasty. No doubt the book will be a classic for those for whom it is intended. However, the book succeeds beyond these limited confines. It is a marvelously crafted gem—a single-authored book in which the teacher conveys a cohesive, integrated, and tightly woven message. The text is very brief but is quite cogent as it is supported and complemented by a wealth of world-class photographs and illustrations. The use of close-up photographs of fresh cadaver specimens coupled with clear, color renderings of the same stage of dissection is simply outstanding. In this case, a picture is worth more than the proverbial thousand words.
