This book is designed to be used by first-year otolaryngology residents, medical students, and primary care physicians. The intent is that the book be small enough to be carried in the pocket; however, the hardback version is certainly too large for this.

The editorial style of this book is in outline form. There is good consistency of this form throughout the book by the various contributors. Some repetition of the general principles occurs, such as airway management, hemorrhage control, etc, in the various trauma-related chapters. The book contains excellent basic material; however, some gaps exist. For example, there is little on the bacteriology of acute otitis media and nothing on indications for tympanostomy tubes. Newer technology, such as computed tomographic scanning for trauma evaluation, argon laser treatments, and magnetic resonance imaging, is mentioned briefly, if at all. There are also few illustrations in the book.
