Compared with some more of the general otolaryngology books (i.e. Head and Neck Surgery - Otolaryngology 4th edition, Bailey et al. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2006) and Cummings Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, 4th edition, Cummings et al. (Elsevier, 2005)), this one does an excellent job of not only describing procedures but also providing appropriate diagrams to accompany them. Procedures such as implant techniques, while not necessarily highly thought of in the otolaryngologic community, are at least mentioned and presented objectively. This is a convenient source to have, as many of the commonly employed techniques are well illustrated and explained. Further detail for procedures may require looking elsewhere, but as an overview or refresher, I can see this being helpful. - Doody's, 3 stars***
