The field of laryngology has vastly expanded over the last 30 years and this latest edition illustrates its continuing evolution. This three-volume edition has been updated and expanded with the addition of 20 new chapters, including paediatric voice disorders and autoimmune disorders, as well as chapters on technological advances in the field of voice.
It provides a comprehensive review of all aspects of voice care and the chapters are written by leading experts in their respective disciplines. Although it is primarily aimed at physicians who deal with voice-related disorders, it will be an excellent source of knowledge and reference to allied healthcare professionals who deal with voice disorders, including vocal teachers, performers and singers.
The first volume contains comprehensive chapters on basic science and clinical assessment, including using latest technology. The second volume covers the non-surgical management of voice disorders and the third volume contains excellent chapters in surgical management of laryngeal disorders. Furthermore, the third volume contains useful chapters on medico-legal aspects, forensics, nursing considerations, teamwork in the management of voice-related disorders. It is evident that the author and Chief Editor, Robert Thayer Sataloff, has intentionally kept the narrative similar throughout and this makes it easier to read and navigate through the book.
The book is well-illustrated and is available in both print and electronic formats.
As an otolaryngologist and head and neck surgeon, this book has provided me with greater knowledge and insight into the field of laryngology and my patients will certainly benefit as a result. It is a leading and comprehensive reference book in the field of laryngology and I would recommend it to anyone that is involved in dealing with patients that have voice-related disorders. I will also be recommending it to my hospital library.
