As stated in the preface of this textbook, one of the editor's primary goals is to provide a relatively complete overview of laryngology for the student, resident, and practitioner. Since Harvey M. Tucker is the principal author for most of the chapters, and the sole laryngologist among the contributors, the book reflects mostly his perspectives on various topics. Although this arrangement might be considered biased, each chapter is thoroughly referenced, and it is obvious that the editor draws on a vast clinical experience. Moreover, the chapters on pathology and radiographic imaging are authored by notable experts: Vincent J. Hyams and Arnold M. Noyek, respectively. The editor points out that being the principal author has the advantages of (1) consistent style of writing and illustrations, (2) continuity from one chapter to the next, and (3) no redundancy among chapters.
