Abstract

This is one of the few English texts written for the general practitioner and the medical student which have been reviewed here. The expected disadvantage to the American physician of regional variation in terminology, techniques, and therapeutics which, though not serious, is a point in favor of American texts. As is characteristic of most English texts, it is exceptionally easily read without excessive verbiage, this book being unusually so because of the author's use of a conversational style. A good addition is several charts on differential diagnostic features of various types of pathology. The illustrations are quite standard but lacking is any bibliography to assist those who desire more detail than this book can offer and I feel this is important.

There are many otolaryngologic texts written for the general practitioner and the medical student, but very few, including this one, would I call excellent.
