To the Editor.—Otolaryngologists everywhere should find good use for a new, easyto-read folder called "What Is An Otolaryngologist?" It has been developed expressly as a service to both our specialty and the public by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Inc.
The attractive brochure, in terms anyone can understand and appreciate, defines "otolaryngologist" and describes the broad scope of the specialty as it is practiced today. It will save wear and tear on the physician who repeatedly has to pronounce, spell, and explain what the word "otolaryngologist" means.
In addition to the nosebleeds, tonsillectomies, adenoidectomies, and such that are common cases for most otolaryngologists, other important aspects of our specialty practice including tumor surgery, microsurgery of the ear, and plastic reconstructive surgery are covered.
Readable in just three to four minutes, this educational piece is ideal for distribution in doctors' reception rooms. It might also be offered
