This is indeed one of the finest handbooks of radiology for the specialty of otolaryngology that I have ever seen. The 140 plates are absolutely superb. The delineations and associated captions are extremely well done.

The various technical positions, such as Caldwell's, Waters,' Laws' and Stenvers,' are so clearly explained and shown by actual pictures that they remain engraved on one's memory.

The normal and the abnormal in the sinuses and the mastoid processes are beautifully illustrated by actual case pictures. There is no mistaking the vast amount of work and knowledge that went into the compilation of this specific volume. It should be bought and read, and reread, by every otolaryngologist who professes to do any surgical work whatsoever on the ear, the nose, the throat or the skull.
