This manual of work done on ear, nose and throat is indeed an excellent one for its particular purpose.
The undergraduate should find in it a wealth of accurately and concisely stated fact, without great elaboration. The drawings and photographs in black and white and in color are particularly well chosen. The really common, and hence important, conditions of the ear, the nose and the throat are treated with just the amount of space and scientific endeavor necessary. In addition, this moderate-sized manual should prove a boon to thegeneral practitioner and the assisting nurse for rapid and accurate referral.
Of especial worthiness is the neatness of the text in handling so well important, easily remembered points of etiology, diagnosis, anatomy, therapeutics and prognosis. In short, there is a tremendous amount of useful knowledge packed into this small manual based on an encyclopedic larger volume. The book should prove extremely valuable
