“Provides a review of the basic and clinical sciences that are the foundation for the practice of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. The topics included are quite diverse, covering the expansive range of knowledge needed for a complete understanding of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. Many of the topics are approached from both a basic science and clinical viewpoint. Clinical correlations, which help to make the information relevant for residents and practicing otolaryngologists, accompany many of the basic science principles presented. The Self-Test Questions, for which answers are provided at the end of the book, are very helpful for the reader to assess his or her understanding of the concepts presented. This textbookprovides a clearly presented and thorough basic and clinical science foundation, which is fundamental to the understanding and practice of otolaryngology. No other textbook in otolaryngology-head and neck surgerycurrently serves such a purpose. This book would be an excellent text for otolaryngology residents to read cover-to-cover early in their residency training. Indeed, as it was developed from an otolaryngology basic science course, it would serve as an outstanding textbook for use in other such courses in training programs throughout the country. The book would also be useful as a review text for residents before the annualOtolaryngology Training Examination or for recent residency graduates preparing for the boards. In addition, it would be a good reference for practicing otolaryngologists, providing an update on the current state of knowledge in the basic and clinical sciences underlying our diverse specialty.”–The Laryngoscope
