This book will receive and certainly deserves a hearty welcome from the members of the medical profession in this country. Those interested in laryngology in particular have looked forward to its publication. It is the only textbook of recent years devoted exclusively to the diseases of the larynx. As the authors say in their preface, "This is remarkable when one considers the prevalence of laryngeal disease."
The book itself is not too voluminous, and it does not tire one with insignificant details. Essentially, it is a clear, concise review of all the diseases peculiar to the larynx. In addition, it contains a full chapter relative to the laryngeal phases of general disease. In this respect, and in many others too numerous to mention, the book should be a valuable adjunct to the library of the general practitioner.
The varied phases of laryngeal disturbances are thoroughly presented in an orderly fashion.
