Editorial Reviews

“This is an outstanding book that covers both common and uncommon topics in infectious disease. I found information on infections that I have never encountered in 30 years of practice. It will be helpful to infectious disease specialists as well as nonspecialists around the world in terms of diagnosis, treatment, and epidemiology of unusual as well as common problems. Excellent glossy photos and tables/figures are informative at a quick glance even without reading the text. Now in its third edition, this book has clearly stood the test of time.” – Joseph R. Lentino, MD, PhD(Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine), Excerpts from Doody’s review service, Rating – 4 Stars!

Essential book for all Otolaryngology residents!February 23, 2012

This is a fantastic atlas for otolaryngology residents. The line drawings are excellent, and each chapter explains in step-by-step, practical fashion how to do a particular operation, with accompanying comments from multiple subspecialty experts. The operations range from simple (tracheotomy) to the difficult and cutting edge (transaxillary robotic-assisted thyroidectomy), and thus the book is appropriate for residents of all levels. As a senior resident, this book enhanced my understanding as I learned to do neck dissections and other head and neck cancer cases. My only disappointment about this book is that it was not available earlier in my residency. What a great idea. Many thanks to the authors who contributed!
