With this book the author's aim is to assist the general practitioner and nonotolaryngologic specialist in correlating primary or secondary ear, nose, and throat disorders with disease conditions in other parts of the body.
The basic science sections of the text are well written and accurate but unaccompanied by illustrations. One picture is still worth a thousand words. The clinical sections are sketchy and there is no truly authoratative discussion relating ear, nose, and throat pathology with distant disease. One of the main areas discussed is "Focus of Infection," a controversial topic generally discounted in contemporary medicine.
Most practicing physicians are quite well aware of the multifocal medical disorders discussed here, and it is therefore felt the book is written below their academic level. Most material appearing in this text is treated in a superficial way and can easily be found in other texts.
