Laryngology Clinical Reference Guide

On receiving this book, it was rather reminiscent of preparing for my FRCS as it is from the series of the infamous ‘Pasha’. It is therefore laid out in the same manner i.e. thin pages and more text than pictures....

The Laryngectomee Guide

As a Macmillan Head and Neck Specialist Nurse, I was very pleased to be asked to review this book, The Laryngectomee Guide, by Itzhak Brook, MD. It is fair to say that for most laryngectomy patients, life does go on...

Anatomy and Physiology of Speech and Hearing

This American book is written for students “in the field of communication sciences and disorders”, however, this is a very useful text for anyone wanting to understand the underpinning science behind speech, swallowing and hearing and balance. The book is...

The second edition of Thieme’s Basic Otorhinolaryngology, as the name suggests, is indeed a step-by-step learning guide for medical students and physicians seeking basic information related to the subject. It comes in an easy-to-learn and user-friendly format, introducing the reader...

Laryngeal Physiology for the Surgeon and Clinician – Second Edition

This second edition is a short (110 pages), succinct and concise book. I don’t usually like reading physiology textbooks, but I found this one very interesting. It is written in a manner which is easy to read and digest. It’s...
