In Clinical Otology and Audiology, Dr G. G. Browning attempts the laudatory undertaking of producing a practical guide to how the average otolaryngologist may arrive at a diagnosis and thereafter manage patients with the more common hearing disorders. Based on the author's teaching and research experience, the textbook goes beyond the typical cataloging of clinical symptoms and probable etiologies. The intent is to make the combined practices of otology and audiology more efficient by encouraging practitioners to critically evaluate their own standard operating procedures.
The book is organized into 17 chapters (242 pages), six appendixes (17 pages), and six pages each of bibliography and index. At the end of each chapter, conclusions are enumerated and further readings suggested. The opening chapter sets the tone for the book by emphasizing the importance of attempting to manage disability in view of the fact that there are few specific otologic treatments for pathology
