This edition, incorporates the recent information on the subject, and yet maintains the classical salient features for which it is known, and remains, a popular textbook. It carries the simple format of the text as well as the diagrams, making it easy to remember and replicate the facts and figures in the examination. The simple style of expression and description makes the learning of the subject easy, interesting and palatable to the young undergraduate students, and even practitioners of medicine as a ready-reckoner. Its flavour lies in its lucid presentation and stardardisation of the format in each chapter. The book prides itself in its content, which though not exhaustive, simply attempts to ‘introduce’ the enchanting world of ENT to the readers, and spur them for further reading. It simultaneously retains its status as a comprehensive textbook which thoroughly covers the undergraduate syllabus. – An ideal textbook for all undergraduate medical students.
