This relatively brief volume concentrates mainly on clinical vestibular function tests and examines virtually every possible vestibular test that could have any clinically useful value. The importance of history taking is touched on, and there is a brief section on the neurologic examination. Only a few pages are devoted to auditory testing. The majority of the volume is given over to equilibrium function tests. The importance of x-ray studies and their interpretation are included in a brief section. Perhaps the most interesting and useful part of the text is at the end—a series of case studies of approximately a dozen vestibular diseases in which the typical history, physical findings, and test results are presented. The volume is of particular interest to the practicing otolaryngologist and resident, but would be of solid reference value to the neurosurgeon and particularly the neurologist.
