From the reviews: "This book presents ! an overview of all the present pediatric ENT, many chapters are in fact an excellent update on major issues. ! The book is well written. The presentation is very clear and very 'reader friendly'. The quality of the illustrations is excellent. ! this is certainly an excellent update on physiology and the last developments in assessments and treatments of pediatric pathology." (M. Remacle, European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, Vol. 265 (5), 2008) "This book provides concise, easy to reference overviews of pathological conditions and clinical pearls on a comprehensive list of pediatric otolaryngological topics. ! This book is intended for residents, fellows, audiologists, and attendings at all levels. ! Each topic has a concise synopsis and the book has an excellent index for reference. This is a welcome addition to the body of pediatric ENT literature." (Brian Kip Reilly, Doody's Review Services, January, 2009) "The book aimed to fill the perceived gap for a paediatric ENT textbook. ! this book was intended to have international appeal. ! The textbook encompasses many aspects of paediatric otolaryngology, including a number of chapters focussing on paediatric medicine relevant to ENT. ! ideal for trainees, especially around exam time. Consultants with any paediatric aspect to their practice would find it a useful reference. ! I own the hardback version of the book, and felt that this represented value ! is an excellent purchase."
