Voice related complaints are common presentations in the ENT clinic and a thorough knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology is paramount in dealing with the complexities of voice disorders. With the advent of digital technological advances, most ENT units will run specialist voice clinics and, therefore, ENT specialist trainees should be exposed to them during their training.

This is an excellent book that provides a very practical and up-to-date guide in voice diagnostics. The book is written by specialists who clearly have a wealth of knowledge in laryngology and phoniatrics. Furthermore, it is written in a way that is easy to understand and apply in clinical practice. The book is well-illustrated with both clinical photographs, which are in colour, as well as diagrams.

This book is a relevant teaching and learning tool for ENT surgeons, including trainees, in ENT surgery, as well as speech and language therapists.

The downside is that it is expensive and, in the era of multimedia resources, it would have been better had it have been accompanied with a CD containing video illustrations or additional resources downloadable from the internet.
