The editor's goal in putting together Textbook of Laryngology was to disseminate the core principles and contemporary practices of this clinical discipline. Drs. Merati and Bielamowicz have created an exceptional introduction to the field of laryngology, filling an educational void. Their textbook draws on the knowledge and experience of a wide range of contributing authors to convey the core information about their field with precision. Uniquely designed as a hands-on text, this book is an ideal resource for teaching and learning. The textbook is an integral part of the editor's commitment to education within otolaryngology and colleagues in the related fields, particularly speech-language pathology. It will appeal to students as well as practicing professionals, who will find the book accessible and invaluable to all members of their laryngology team.Bielamowicz, Stephen is the author of 'Textbook of Laryngology ', published 2006 under ISBN 9781597560283 and ISBN 1597560286.
