Sheehan's book on nasal plastic surgery was probably the first of its kind to appear in this country in the postwar period and was received with great interest. Eleven years have elapsed, in which a number of works on the same subject have been published by other authors. The second edition of Sheehan's book finds him still in the van. Some of the older technic has been discarded, and new angles have been introduced as a result of accumulated experience, so that one notes a tendency to conciseness and clarity in the new edition, which makes it more easily followed. As in the first edition, stress is laid on the fundamentals and much of the detail of preoperative and postoperative care is discussed in a practical manner. The chapters on the operation on the septum, transplantation of costal cartilage, the syphilitic nose and skin grafts are particularly well done.
