"The book is devoted to rhinology (Chaps. 1-25) and to sleep apnea (Chaps. 26-48) ... . Very numerous and excellent drawings and pictures have been selected to make difficult anatomy or surgical techniques accessible to the reader showing that the book has been carefully planned to address residents and trainees, as well as specialists. ... it is a comprehensive update of current surgical techniques written by experts in their field, and therefore it is a must in a specialist's library."
