Review Quotes
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. (S. Powell, The Journal of Laryngology & Otology, Vol. 124, 2010)
