This book provides a step-by-step operative guide for over 40 common otorhinolaryngological procedures. One would expect a door stop of a book, however the authors have purposefully kept each section succinct and colourful with an easy to read font.

As a result, the book is a refreshing browse with clear illustrations, high quality photographs and top tips from the experienced authors. Although not comprehensive, it provides a good overview for the operations covered. The procedures are wide ranging from basic emergency procedures such as manipulation of a fractured nose to more advanced elective ones including cochlear implants and total laryngectomies.

Aimed at junior ENT trainees embarking on these procedures for the first time, I think it serves as an aide-memoir for trainees at all levels. As a third year registrar, I found the tips especially insightful as I am sure they will form the basis of ‘intraoperative suggestions’ that will be put forward to my bosses in the near future!
