This is an attractive effort at a new approach to organizing and presenting an overview of our specialty to medical students and physicians in other fields. It represents the product of a collaborative effort between the publisher and an academic university department to produce a new kind of textbook that embodies the concept of integrated learning processes and problem-oriented learning.
The book is organized into eight categorical "parts" (the ear, the nose, etc) and each part is approached using five "concept sections" (background, history and physical examination, presentation, description, and management principles).

This book should be reviewed by those who have teaching responsibilities for
