Since this volume covers a rather extensive field in only 245 pages, it must be somewhat sketchy and perhaps dogmatic. The author seems, however, to have chosen well the essentials of treatment along with adequate, though concise, discussions of underlying anatomy and pathology and sufficient reference to document his statements. He has weighed well the use of newer remedies in the light of older concepts, and few men familiar with the field will find much disagreement with his conclusions. Minor points such as only cursory reference to allergy in relation to recurrent sinus disease and the advice to use sprays of liquid petrolatum in the larynx may be questioned.

The text is well written, and the format and arrangements excellent. This book should have considerable value not only to the otolaryngologist but also to pediatricians and others whose fields overlap that specialty.
