Pediatric Otolaryngology Practical Clinical Management

The pleasing thud of this book dropping through my letterbox was tempered by mild anxiety. I’d just accepted an adult ENT job with a paediatric on-call, and my trusty Graham, Scadding and Bull was nearly a decade out of date....

Vertigo Rehabilitation Protocols

The authors of Vertigo Rehabilitation Protocols, describe this book as an “invaluable resource” for neurologists, ENT doctors, orthopaedists and other rehabilitation specialists. However, I believe it would be directed more towards senior clinicians rather than those new to the field,...

Mastering Medical Photography of the Head and Neck

Medical photography has always been an integral part of the medical profession with benefits that span diagnosis, follow up, assessment of results and teaching. The popularisation of digital photography has made it more accessible to most doctors and other health...

Image-Guided Surgery: Fundamentals and Clinical Applications in Otolaryngology

Auditory-Verbal Therapy for Young Children with Hearing Loss and Their Families, and the Practitioners Who Guide Them

When I was first presented with the Halloween-like graphic that is displayed on the cover of this 230-page book, I wondered what scary stories may lie ahead. To my delight, by the time I’d turned over the first few pages,...

Professor Bill Gibson is one of the great pioneers of inner ear surgery and the recent publication of his biography is a reflection of his remarkable life and career. Bill Gibson: Pioneering Bionic Ear Surgeon will be enjoyed by everyone...

Marketing in an Audiology Practice

“This is not, I repeat, not, a marketing textbook.” A strange, if somewhat bemusing opening to a book with the word ‘Marketing’ firmly placed in its title. The author then goes on to explain why it is not a marketing...

Deaf Culture: Exploring Deaf Communities in the United States

This book is intended as an introductory text for those studying deaf studies or American Sign Language in the USA. It is written by a mix of deaf and hearing authors and perhaps some of its shortcoming in feeling like...

Strategic Practice Management – 2nd Edition

I was very pleased to take on the task of reviewing this book as I support Starkey’s Business Development Partnership Programme set up to support the UK and Irish Independent sector and to encourage audiologists to run their own businesses....
