Volume 1 of this four-volume set addresses general otolaryngology, the face, the nose, and the paranasal sinuses. In their preface, the editors describe the set as a definitive text and a detailed reference work. Both organization and content clearly support this description. The orderly arrangement of the material into the categories of basic science, diagnostic assessment, clinical entities, and special considerations facilitates the search for specific subjects, and speaks for a general orderliness of thought most pleasing to this reviewer.
In addition to chapters dealing with the intersecting clinical disciplines and basic sciences, the editor of volume 1 has presented us with comprehensive and lucid sections on currently applicable technology written by recognized experts. The typeface is close-set but entirely readable. The illustrations and graphs are clear, appropriate to the text, and generously captioned. The photographs are generally of professional quality, approaching the informational limits of black-and-white reproduction.
