From the Foreword

"It is with great pride that I introduce this book (and its companion Practical Otology for the Otolaryngologist) edited by Dr. Seilesh Babu and contributed to by many other members of the Michigan Ear Institute and their former fellows. This book reflects a 25-year experience in Clinical Otology, Neurotology, and Skull Base Surgery, an experience rich in contributions in diagnosis, evaluations, electrophysiologic monitoring, and surgical technique innovations and modifications."
Malcolm D. Graham, M.D., Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia


"...The printed page is easy to read and is of a high quality befitting a medical book. Practical Otology for the Otolaryngologist is lavishly embellished with tables and figures that underscore high points and facts that need to be learned—and help the reader to quickly review the content...

As its title suggests, it is supremely practical. In every chapter, there is something for both the novice and the experienced practitioner... In that sense, it is a worthwhile investment that will help solidify the foundations of the fledgling trainee and place a capstone on the knowledge base of the experienced surgeon...

Practical Otology for the Otolaryngologist is everything the editor planned it to be. It is a delectable offering, packed with information that can be read in small morsels that are easy to read and digest. I recommend the book very highly and have already recommended it to our residents and medical students, as well as the nurse practitioner."
Arun K. Gadre, MD, FACS, Heuser Hearing Institute Professor of Otology and Neurotology, Division of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery, University of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky, in The Laryngoscope (July 2014)

"The Practical Otology for the Otolaryngologist and its companion Practical Neurotology and Skull Base Surgery, are sister textbooks written by eminent Michigan Ear Institute surgeons. The style and format of these books are very similar, and complement each other well, with regards to content. The materials used in both of these books are excellent; the sturdy hardback covers, high GSM glossy full colour pages and pin-sharp image reproduction quality give a superb first impression. They are also reassuringly not enormous volumes, allowing one to believe that they can be actually read, rather than ending up as a geeky doorstop. Special kudos goes to the Michigan team for producing such high quality images throughout these books. The fantastically clear operative images of the posterior skull base are to be applauded."
Vik Veer, Newcastle on Tyne, UK, in the Journal of Laryngology & Otology (April 2014)
